Are we now in the tunnel at the end of the light?
Climate Change has become a reality with little room to maneuver. Some talk about changes that would be detrimental to many of the things we have built our societies on. The more-than-human world is being slaughtered all around us in the name of progress and greed. Meanwhile psychologists talk about depression, sadness, acceptance and climate grief.
But, at the same time, youth are rising up, regardless of any abstract notion of hope. And as we anguish, people, plants, animals around the world are struggling without respite, and have been for a long time.
What would it mean to be in the tunnel at the end of the light? A tunnel can also be a place of refuge, or an escape route. When our eyes become accustomed to the darkness, what is it we will see? What kind of existential questions do we need to ask? How do we stop running from disaster to disaster? Incident to incident?
CEMUS and the Sigtuna Foundation welcome you to the fifth ClimateExistence 2020! Together we will ask the difficult questions, searching in the darkness for glimpses of light to guide or steps forward. Venturing into the blackest black, standing closer to the edge, stepping into the void.
