The website says "On Monday, 27 February from 10am to 4pm at Bradford Cathedral, a number of prominent speakers will convene to inspire and support conversation, networking and knowledge sharing towards how the arts and culture sector can implement change in their practices to align themselves more closely with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


The symposium will host a number of discussions, panels and performances from local, national and international artists and speakers from across the creative industries. Speakers will include Pakistan’s humanitarian 'architect for the poor' Yasmeen Lari and Naho Mirumachi from Kings Water Hub sharing global perspectives on our water crisis. We’ll have performances by Sufi musician Sarah Yaseen, exploring faith and climate, in conversation with Bradford Cathedral and Eco-Sikh UK; BBC 1xtra future figure 2022 Adjei Sun and writer and former Young Poet laureate Selina Nwulu sharing poetry on social and environmental justice. Climate-related case studies will be presented from organisations from across the UK, including Kew Gardens, Factory International, Arts Catalyst and Invisible Dust. Seetal Solanki from Ma-tt-er will explore climate literacy; Ling Tan from Low Carbon Chinatown will discuss our future footprints with environmental and sustainability manager Feimatta Conteh; and we’ll have moments of respite with Climate Yoga by Kin Things."
