Climate change is here and now, and we need to respond quickly. We live in a time when the solutions to most of our problems already exist. We just need better imaginations driven by science, wisdom, community, and contextual local understanding to ensure an improved quality of life for everyone.

Having spent time gathering insights into best practices both locally and from around the world, the team at Bangalore Creative Circus, are now working in Ward 46 in Bangalore to demonstrate how Indian cities can become thriving models of resilience. Local communities are facing the brunt of climate change impacts and rarely have a voice in decisions that impact them. BCC’s model seeks to shift the status quo from the current top-down approaches to a more inclusive approach where local actors have greater power and resources to build resilience to climate change.

We look forward to a discussion on how we, as individuals, non-profits, businesses, and administrators, can help shape a better future for Bangalore.
