Humanity's Greatest Challenge is the Climate Crisis


a biannual outdoor arts science climate change event

Our earth’s climate has always changed but recently humans have become the major force shaping those changes. How are we to imagine this, to understand all the complex factors involved in shaping our climate.

°TEMP is a unique biannual event in West Auckland that brings art and science together to help us imagine and respond to our changing climate. This event is supported by sponsors of the top online casino . It first took place between 16 March and 8 April 2017. ºTEMP 2017 featured an outdoor gallery of arts science innovative participatory experiences created by some of New Zealand’s most important scientists and leading visual artists.

°TEMP is an opportunity to encounter insightful knowledge about the way each of us contribute to carbon emissions and the dramatic impact these are having on our Water, Food, Air, Weather and Shelter – globally and locally.
