Can art bring people with different perspectives on sustainability together? According to world-renowned artist Olafur Eliasson that may be the case. TOMORROW has talked with Eliasson about the role of art in the climate debate. In addition to his work as an artist, Olafur Eliasson is a Goodwill-ambassador for the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). The program focuses on improving climate-related issues based on the UN’s global goals for sustainable development. Eliasson tries to challenge the way people perceive climate change, culture, and community – with art as a message to bridge divides in societies around the world.
