In this pressing era of climate change, Melbourne is taking significant steps towards going completely carbon neutral. But what are those steps? And how does any city really go carbon neutral?

In this workshop for 12—14-year-olds, construct a physical landscape of statistics and strategies to represent Melbourne’s push to carbon neutrality in a tactile and visual way.

Learn how a power grid can be laid, how towers can be built, how roads are used to join the towers, and how trees can be planted to bring everything together as you work with others to produce an immersive ‘Carbonscape’.

Presented in collaboration with artist-researchers from Local Alternatives and the Creative Agency Lab at RMIT.

This event has been developed as part of the M_Curators, an MPavilion program engaging young makers, doers and programmers. This initiative is made possible by our presenting partner Bloomberg Philanthropies.
