Art & The Climate Emergency
We have reached a defining moment in the history of our planet and the cultural sector has a unique part to play in effecting change.
In July 2019, Tate’s Directors declared a climate emergency. Our pledge is to respond with actions across all four Tate galleries, to put the climate emergency centre stage, reduce Tate's carbon footprint by at least 10 per cent by 2023.
Our declaration of a climate emergency is just the beginning in our determination to effect and inspire change.
Here we share a selection of books recommeded by our booksellers and Studio Eliasson to help inform and respond to the climate crisis.
