This October ASCUS is delighted to be partnering with the Greenhouse gAs Uk and Global Emissions (GAUGE) project to bring you ASCUS Lab’s very first Greenhouse Gas Exchange event for creative practitioners.
The Greenhouse Gas Exchange is a day long interactive event for creative practitioners interested in meeting current researchers involved in the GAUGE project. This is an opportunity for those working in creative fields to get unique access to specialist knowledge of current understanding of greenhouse gas (GHG) cycles and to exchange and discuss the consequences of increasing GHG levels and their impact on and resonance within society today and in the future.
The day will give participants the opportunity to bring to the table their own interest in issues around climate change and to get realtime experience of the different biological responses and parameters that are involved in the cause and effect of GHG emissions. The day will culminate with the ‘Museums of the Future Now‘ a participatory workshop led by guest artists Jo Hodges and Robbie Colman. This will provide the platform for participants to create speculative scenarios designed to explore and reflect on the drivers and dynamics of climate change and how these might interrelate within the context of GHG emissions.
This is an exciting opportunity to join us in ASCUS Lab for a day of participatory conversations, scientific experiments, demos and creative exploration!
Scroll down to see how to apply…
- Why you are interested in attending and the relevance to your practice
- What you would get out of this opportunity
Please also include:
- A link to one relevant piece of work online
- Your preferred date (7th or 14th)
- Your anticipated travel expenses to participate
We are looking for applications from creative practitioners with a genuine interest in the topics being explored and discussed. Priority will be given to individuals who can demonstrate that this opportunity will be of benefit to them in the context of their creative practice.
Please note that the event on the 14th of October is now fully booked therefore this extension is for the event on the 7th only
More about Greenhouse gAs Uk and Global Emissions (GAUGE)
The main focus of GAUGE is to quantify the UK GHG budget in order to underpin the development of effective emission reduction policies, putting the UK GHG budget into a global context by providing extended analyses on European and global scales.
GAUGE addresses this by integrating inter- calibrated information from ground-based, airborne, ferry-borne, balloon-borne, and space-borne sensors, including new sensor technology, allowing us to lay the foundations of new measurement infrastructures that delivers beyond GAUGE incorporating world-class modelling expertise.
GAUGE is led by the University of Edinburgh and consists of researchers from the Universities of Bristol, Leicester, Leeds, Manchester, and Cambridge, the UK Met Office, NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, and STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
Understanding and quantifying Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions is central to international efforts to slow their growth rate in the atmosphere, in order to mitigate the humanitarian and economic impacts of climate change.
The overarching objective of the UK Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Feedback Programme is to deliver improved GHG inventories and predictions for the UK, and for the globe at a regional scale. We are addressing this by developing a comprehensive, multi-year and interlinked measurement and data analysis programme, focussing on the major GHGs carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O).
