Coastal Creativity

News banner

Stronger Shores are excited to support the CLIMATE CREATIVES CHALLENGE. This is a global initiative serving as a catalyst for innovation in climate communication. This includes a biannual international design competition, supporting new and novel approaches for communicating the impacts of climate change and the benefits of mitigation, adaptation and resilience.

The next challenge is focusing on how we can communicate the impacts of climate change on coastal zones and the benefits of adaptation and resilience.

As the climate crises progresses and impacts increase, we must find ways to bring people together to learn about and understand our changing world. The Climate Creatives Challenge provides a fantastic opportunity to reach out to individuals from all over the world, and create conversations about coastal change, and the benefits of mitigation, adaptation and resilience through art. Stronger Shores are keen to support this challenge, with art and creativity allowing people to connect knowledge with emotion, a powerful combination that can bring people together to encourage positive change.

The challenge is free to enter and open to people of all disciplines and creative backgrounds including;​ Designers, filmmakers, architects, programmers, engineers, musicians, sculptors, illustrators, storytellers, scientists, marine biologists, data visualisers, geographers, social scientists, environmentalists… anyone with a creative concept that could help communicate this theme.
