WHY CARTOONS FOR CLIMATE RISKS?
Fun is FUNctional
Humor, like humanitarian work, is about the gap between what is and what should be. It flourishes in the midst of our absurdities, contradictions, tensions, and denial. Cartoonists can help us notice, then confront, what is unacceptable yet accepted.
Usual climate events rarely lead to candor and creativity, which we urgently need. Our “Cartoonathons” engage climate stakeholders and professional humorists, co-creating tools for risk communication.
