We are obsessed with the weather. It is a powerful, shared daily experience, offering us an immediate talking point to engage other people. Yet when we talk about climate change the sense of guilt or powerlessness can be enough to kill the conversation.

WHAT? - Share this video with your class to spark creative thinking about how humans may adapt to extreme weather and climate change in the future - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqckMCO-8fc&index=6&list=PLf_S39L3F3QV6_sG_HvdQogwXSwkao0BO

WHY? - By engaging both weather and climate in a playful, provocative way, we hope to leapfrog over current polarised public debates. By bringing together works by artists, designers, scientists, meteorologists and engineers STRANGE WEATHER asks questions such as:

> Should human culture be reshaped to fit strange weather or should we reshape weather to fit our strange culture?
> Who is going to take advantage of climate chaos and how will strange weather benefit me?
> How will you choose to work, celebrate, live and die when weather gets weird?
