Mosaic for Awareness Raising on Climate Change Beijing

Between November 21 and April 22 a Climate Change Community Mosaic was created in Beijing. It was  a wonderful project that kept us busy and active for this good course – awareness raising about climate change.

The whole project started with a tweet by the GLOBAL ASSEMBLY that wants to involve people’s direct voices in the COP discussions – compared to representatives voices as it is until now- and inspire and enable ordinary citizens to discuss climate change policies amongst themselves. One medium of this discussion shall be art.

Together with 3 other women we organized our own “Global Assembly” of the international community of Beijing and out of the discussion on that day December 8, 2021 the Climate Change Community Mosaic was created.

It was absolutely overwhelming to have soo many people interested to participate to make the mosaic with their own hands, to search for an appropriate location and to give general support in translating between Chinese and English, writing content, creating publications, installing and hosting the inauguration.

It’s almost impossible to describe the happily busy time between November 21 and April 22 at MosaicMoments studio that ended in 3 inaugurations of the mosaic mural at school yard of the German School in Beijing. The teachers, students and administration of the school received this artwork with great joy, promising that they would keep creating more art for climate change as they felt inspired by our mosaic.
