ZEROCARBONCITY (article first published : 2005-09-24)

British Council Durban has embarked on an innovative multi-pronged, global project: ZeroCarbonCity, a British Council campaign aimed at reframing the international climate change debate by exploring the energy challenges facing the world’s greatest cities. This reaches Durban this Michaelmas, at the time of Celebrate eThekwini.

Launched in the UK this year, the campaign will visit over 60 countries around the world with a variety of activities taking place. In South Africa, ZeroCarbonCity has been launched as a national campaign in partnership with four cities: Cape Town, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and Durban.

The collaborative exhibition NorthSouthEastWest features ten of the world’s top photographers from Magnum Photographic Agency who were commissioned to capture images from ten diverse countries to illustrate the impacts of climate change. The exhibition – which is travelling around South Africa - will be exhibited outside the Durban City Hall until October 31.

There is a series of workshops on offer for teachers in collaboration with Department of Education. The ever-visionary Siwela Sonke Dance Theatre will present a dance piece on climate change entitled When Hot is Not…Dancing on a Volcano in the Playhouse during the day on October 6 and 7.

For more information contact the British Council on 031 310 3650.
