Reboot the Future invite emerging and experienced environmental activists including Jonathon Porritt to talk about their role in campaigning for a more sustainable world, and how the arts can be used to share messages and advocate for change. This session kicks off with a 30 minute viewing of ‘Rise Up’, a short film that tells the inspirational stories of five young people, from 2021 – 2025, as they each in their own way, rise up to tackle the climate crisis.
Join a panel of experts to delve into the themes of the Human / Nature series and this evening’s concert. How have composers’ responses to the natural world been shaped by their place, time and experience? What role can the arts, individual artists and arts organisations play in addressing the climate emergency?
This session will include live performances from Philharmonia musicians and MMSF Fellows.
