Phone call to the World

PHONE CALL TO THE WORLD is one of 17 global projects commissioned by the British Council that explores climate change and environmental crises through art, science and digital technology.

Groups of young people from three continents are engaging with climate change issues that impact them at a local level, coming together  to consider the wider global climate challenge. Using the simple holding framework of Phone Call to the World , young people from Scotland, South Africa, Palestine, England and India are creating digital performance work that will inform, question, confront and make demands of its different audiences to make a difference to one of the most pressing issues of our time.
