Climate Realities

Presented in collaboration with the Sheffield School of Architecture at the University of Sheffield, the Climate Realities season explores the realities of climate change for those living in our towns and cities, presenting an urgent look at the climate crisis through the eyes of citizens directly affected by its consequences.

The effects of global warming are happening now. Average global temperatures have risen by more than 1.1 degrees Celsius since the industrial revolution. We are seeing increased droughts, wildfires, and extreme rainfall across the world. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), modern humans have never before seen changes like we are seeing now in our global climate. The climate crisis is causing dangerous and widespread disruption to ecosystems and communities. But what does this really mean for the communities that are directly affected?

In this series of films, we will see the impact of climate change on Black communities living in Miami who are being forced out of their homes as rising sea levels threaten the homes of the rich closer to the sea front. We will also see the impact of electricity generation on those living underneath the power plants which provide energy to our cities, and the impact of those in Delhi who are suffering now from high levels of pollution and extreme heat. We will also imagine a future where communities in the UK are forced to migrate to the global south as a result of climate displacement.
