Artists have historically always been inspired by, and to some extent dependent on, the weather. Now we get the experienced Danish meterologist Jesper Theilgaard to Åland which gives us the opportunity to hear more about his exciting reflections on how the weather has looked historically in art, what it has meant to us and what knowledge this can give us in the future.
Weather in art, Önningebymuseet
April 24th, at 7.00 p.m.
(Tickets 10 € are purchased on location.)
During his Åland-visit, Jesper Theilgaard also holds several other interesting lectures at Högskolan på Åland and Alandica. Many of us have reflected on the extremely dry and hot summer during 2018, then the storm Alfrida in the beginning of 2019 and we all have, to some extent, taken part of Greta Thunberg-inspired actions around the whole world. The concern for the climate is growing. Are we experiencing extreme weather? Is this our new normal? What can you do?
There are a lot of myths about the climate and many different perceptions about what is climate change and global warming. Jesper Theilgaard has more than 40 years of experience in climate research and he sees it as a very important task to talk about the importance of the ongoing climate change that changes our environment. We need action now if climate change is not to create even more chaos in the world.
We look forward to welcoming Jesper Theilgaard to Åland on April 24th-25th, when he will hold a number of interesting lectures on climate research and climate development.
