CLIMATE CARE 2019

Climate Care

A curriculum for Urban Practice
Curated by Gilly Karjevsky & Rosario Talevi for the Floating University e.V.
August 1-10, 2019

This summer, Climate Care will explore correlations between environment, urban practice and education by devising a programme for climate challenges. Climate Care brings the affirmative attitude of care discourse into climate topics, tackling not only environmental issues, but caring for the entangled social, political and economical climates that surrounds us today. Taking on the site and situation in the water-basin, as a starting point, the newly formed Floating University e.V will focus on environmental awareness through caring for relationships, situations and the places in which technologies, ecologies and humans meet. A diverse programme will invite the wider public to inhabit the site by being together and forming lasting human and non-human bonds.

With (by order of appearance): Olivier Gobelet, Rachid Moro, Animalesque AA Visiting School, Alexandra Genis, Selina Seyed, Valeria Schwarz, Sabine Zahn, Julien Fargetton, Die Foodbrücke, The Perennial Institute, Extinction Rebellion, Ana Lisa Alperovich, Susan Ploetz, Katherine Ball, Sabine Vogel, Martina Kolarek, Symbiosfera, Organic Structure and Kollektiv Eigenklang, Rebecca Abena Kennedy-Asante, Imeh Ituen and Sumugan Sivanesan (BIPoC  vs. CO2), Miriam Wistreich, Patricia Reed, Klimanotstand, Sabine Vogel, Mauricio Corbalan, Sandra Bartoli, Fiona Shipwright and Ian Warner (Way Too  Concrete), Pinewax Records, Teresa Dillon, Daphne Dragona, Elise Hunchuck and many more…

Note: The Floating University will no longer be called University as this is a regulatory offense. The Floating University Assembly is looking for a new name. Please leave your suggestions at the Immatriculation Office.
