Track Zero aims to deliver creative platforms for the arts, science and others, to inspire transformative climate action – working together to build a resilient, carbon-neutral society that is fair for all of us. We organise projects and events to create a dialogue, increasing awareness around the urgency of the response that is needed. We offer informative resources on climate change and climate action initiatives. We actively seek collaboration with artists, scientists and other sectors to tell the climate story in ways that engage people’s hearts and minds so they feel empowered to act on climate change – the biggest cultural challenge of our time.

Human-induced climate change is affecting our food, livelihoods, security and our very existence. The Paris Agreement aims to keep temperature rise this century well below 2ºC and drive efforts to limit the increase to 1.5ºC. Scientists tell us we have a critical window – less than a decade – to act to prevent climate events that may be beyond civilisation’s capacity to adapt. The urgent response needed is not being matched by action.
