Heatwaves, droughts, forest fires, storms and floods: the consequences of global climate change have become painfully apparent and tangible. Yet greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise. Part of the problem lies in the fact that climate change is hard for people to wrap their heads around. Climate change is after all a form of what Rob Nixon calls ‘slow violence’: unspectacular and explosive yet gradual and as good as invisible.

The victims of slow violence are found in the far future or at the other side of the world. It cannot be traced to a single source and there are no simple solutions. How can we imagine and communicate the slow disaster called climate change? Writers, artists and academics go in search of answers to this pressing question and others through talks, interviews, debates and performances.
