WWF UK invites you to their event

Just Imagine: Art, Community Engagement, and Our Journey to COP26

About this event

WWF-UK Virtual Exhibition Launch

Can you reimagine a future where we put nature at the heart of our decisions? 

The way we live is driving wildlife populations to extinction, causing the climate to collapse, and destroying precious habitats. 

Just Imagine is a unique opportunity to platform the hope of a reimagined future from our creative communities. Together, we can kick-start the conversation about the solutions to this crisis, through discussion on art, community engagement, and our journey to COP26! 

WWF-UK are hosting the Just Imagine virtual launch event on Thursday 29th April 2021 at 6pm to make space for this UK-wide conversation and to celebrate the opening of our virtual exhibition.  We will be joined by a vibrant panel of speakers, with diverse experiences in the art, cultural, and environmental sectors.  Join us, alongside other community voices from across the UK for a unique opportunity to engage with our panel, and raise your questions and concerns around climate.  

Let’s seize this year’s key political opportunities to influence our government on climate change and ensure they commit to protecting nature and our planet. Find out more about Just Imagine through our website: https://attenboroughfilm.com/creative-arts/.
