Art of climate change
The Blue Knob Hall Gallery has a monthly ‘On the Easel’ feature. This month it’s the 350 Climate Change Quilt by Kyogle’s Black Horse Creek Community.
For many years the community has enjoyed marking special occasions with collaborative quilts. 350 represents the safe (ish) upper limit of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere, measured in parts per million (ppm). 350ppm is the point to which the planet must return (currently at 389) to stabilise climate. The people’s 350 movement called for leaders to make sweeping, positive changes to protect our world when they met at the UN climate conference at Copenhagen.
They didn’t. Of course.
