Dr David Swann, Professor in Design at Sheffield Hallam University and the Principal Investigator of the award-winning, GCRF Life-Saving Lullabies project, has been invited by the AHRC and Praxis to present the team's novel zero-cost approach as part of the Resilience Hub at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow. Home of Race to Resilience at COP26, the Resilience Hub is designed to advance action on adaptation and resilience and to help set the direction for future action beyond COP26. This session aims to shed light on this topic based on the following objectives: 1) To raise awareness about the significance and vulnerability of social categories such as gender, race and class, in relation to the risk to climate change in different worldwide regions; 2) To highlight the opportunities for addressing climate resilience and adaptation, through recognising and exploring arts, culture, and heritage research and action that encompasses and embraces awareness of these social categories; 3) To explore ways in which arts, culture and heritage can facilitate a better and inclusive conversation around social inequalities such as gender, race, class and ethnicity in different places; 4) To highlight opportunities for arts-based methods, sensitive to these categories, to also facilitate and support net zero research. David will be one of three speakers that explores the potential for arts, culture and heritage to tackle gender and diversity in climate resilience and adaptation. The LSL team comprises of Professor David Swann (PI), Co-investigators Dr James Reid and Professor Barry Doyle from the University of Huddersfield, Morrice Muteba, National-Co-ordinator for St John Zambia, Tony Kawimbe and Chloe George from Ufulu Studios.
