The Resilience Frontiers Pavilion was back at COP 28 in Dubai, UAE with an exciting programme of events running from 2-11 Dec 2023.

This year we focused on ‘the transformational power of creative arts’. Our events and experiences featured leading speakers, creative thinkers, artists and performers as we explored how we can harness the power of creative arts to imagine a better world – and to create it; creativity to search, try, and realize impossible worlds; creativity to believe that impossible worlds can be reached and become lived experiences for all humanity to thrive.

This year have also been collaborating with the Hot Poets on the exciting ‘Haiku Futures’ project – find out more below.

We thank everyone who joined us in Dubai!

Haiku Futures

Resilience Frontiers is collaborating with the Hot Poets to creatively re-imagine a better future. Hot Poets ran the ‘Haiku Futures’ project, a crowd-sourcing haiku (a type of short poem) and photography project aimed at bringing the Resilience Frontiers pathways to life through moving participatory films, engaging thousands of people from around the world to take part in sharing their creative ideas on how humans can reconnect with nature, and reshape our value systems.

The first four films are below, and these form part of a larger powerful new collection of ideas and inspiration, which was showcased at the Resilience Frontiers Pavilion at COP28 in Dubai.

Transformed relationship of humanity with nature

Lifelong learning for environmental stewardship

Equitable and Inclusive Management of Water and Other Natural Resources
