Further Reading: The intertwined nature of crises
Crises of war, authoritarianism, neoliberalism, and climate are highly intersectional. Each crisis cannot be tackled as a distinct challenge, they are all part of one picture. Below is a list of recent articles that address this head on which we have referred to in our recent posts on Instagram. Lower down, we share links to the IPCC report and further resources for solutions and action organised by the United Nations.
Note: This page will be further developed by Studio Olafur Eliasson over the coming months.

Take part in ActNow - the United Nations campaign for individual action on climate change and sustainability.
To preserve a livable climate, greenhouse-gas emissions must be reduced to net zero by 2050. Bold, fast, and wide-ranging action needs to be taken by governments and businesses. But the transition to a low-carbon world also requires the participation of citizens – especially in advanced economies. Every one of us can help limit global warming and take care of our planet. By making choices that have less harmful effects on the environment, we can be part of the solution and influence change. Find out more at: www.un.org/actnow
