These projects will work with communities to empower people to make real changes in how they interact with the environment.
Visualising sea level rise
Línte na Farraige is the work of artists Timo Aho and Pekka Niittyvirta, together with scientists Zoë Roseby (from Trinity College), Maeve Upton (Maynooth University), Gerard McCarthy (Maynooth University), and Jamie Mathews (Imperial College London), as well as the Dublin Climate Action Regional Office.
The project will create light installations at Irish coastal locations and heritage sites to communicate the risks of future sea level rise. Each installation comprises illuminated horizontal lines that represent future sea levels as predicted by international research agencies such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. From the dark winter evenings to summer twilights, the installations will draw people into the climate change discussion.
