Annabella Rijksen | Student Art & Economy
I am doing research on design and climate change and how collaboration and co-creation between designers and scientists, politicians, engineers, etc. can create more positive impact on the environment and our climate.
Together with a few others members of ‘The Turn Club’, a community of over 300 artists in The Netherlands searching to engage their artist mindset in complex social issues, she is traveling to the Green Culture Festival by train.
Slow traveling gives the opportunity to develop the idea further. At the festival she will host workshops.
My thesis is about the wicked problem Climate Change and Design and therefore I did a research about the role of designers and their impact on climate change.
I want to connect designers with people who have other disciplines, so they can co-create and use cross-overs to improve or expand their ideas and concepts. Those concepts must have a positive effect on the climate.
During my journey and at The Green Culture World Festival I will be a matchmaker. Germany, France, Luxembourg and Belgium (possibly: Kosovo and Albania).
Annabella travels to Budapest only.
