Take part in a weekend of free workshops, artist commissions, installations, films, talks and food all about climate and sustainability

Join us for the launch of Power to Change and imagine new ways of thinking about climate and how to make a positive impact on our future.

Power to Change considers the artistic, museum and cultural sectors’, emotional and practical responses to climate and ecological emergency. We are amplifying the voices of artists, designers, industry leaders, sustainable practitioners, our neighbours and local community, to inspire and accelerate action around climate.

The launch of Power to Change coincides with COP26, the 26th annual United Nations summit on climate change. Taking place in Glasgow from October 31 to November 12 2021, it will see world leaders, government representatives, business and citizens come together for twelve days of talks.

Tate declared a climate and ecological emergency in July 2019, recognising the unique role art and art museums can play in creating fundamental societal change. As an institution, Tate is committed to reducing its carbon emissions by 50 per cent by 2023 and to reducing emissions to net zero by 2030. Find out more about our ongoing work to reduce our carbon footprint and protect the environment.

Power to Change is supported by the AKO Foundation.
