Founded by Nelson Mandela in 2007, The Elders are an independent group of global leaders working together for peace, justice, and human rights, of which Mary Robinson – the first woman president of Ireland – is Chair. Working both publicly and through private diplomacy, The Elders engage with global leaders and civil society at all levels to resolve conflict and address its root causes, to challenge injustice, and to promote ethical leadership and good governance. Earlier this month, Mary Robinson, holding a Little Sun at the podium, participated in the Berlin Energy Transition dialogue and spoke frankly about the role Germany must play in a just transition out of coal for good: ‘Words are not enough. What we need is action: action to drastically cut emissions so temperatures do not rise above the 1.5 degree limit; action to end the use of fossil fuels in domestic markets, and the financing of fossil fuel projects in developing countries by development banks and other financial institutions; and action to deliver a just transition, so that regions and communities previously reliant on fossil fuel production for jobs and broader economic and social structures are not abandoned, that workers’ rights and dignity are respected, and that new opportunities are provided through investment and education for current and future generations.’

Studio Other Spaces, as a potential part of the reinvention of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York, has designed ‘Common sky’, a sculpture that uses transparent glass and mirror reflections to modulate visitors’ views into the trees of the park. Meanwhile, it generates an ever-changing shadow pattern on the ground. This project would form a new public space connecting the existing Bunshaft Gallery, the surrounding park, and the new master plan and addition designed by OMA
