Bloomberg Climate Hope inspires The Carbon Path

Engaging Cities with Climate Change
Climate Change Communication in cities has never been more crucial as 70% of global carbon emmissions originate from our cities. Positive momentum that speeds action to a low carbon future based around renewable energy technologies is the way forward.
Climate Gardens is meeting this challenge by developing The Carbon Path, a public garden installation to engage mass action on climate change in major capital cities such as Paris and London from 2020.
Why link Climate Change to Gardens?
Gardens and plants connect us to the rapidly changing climate as they respond to daily and local weather patterns as a reflection of the much bigger climate picture.
Every day plants bear witness to the climate changing outside our own back doors. They help us to see the shift in extreme weather scenarios approaching every day in our own lives rather than in a remote Arctic location or deserted island.
Plants survive these changes by harnessing the natural elements of sun, wind and water on a daily basis. It is these natural resources that will enable the adaptation to a low carbon world using the renewable energies of solar, wind and water power.
The concepts for The Carbon Path have been created by Deborah Scott Anderson of Climate Gardens. The designs are being delivered by Tom Massey, a talented UK garden designer. Both Deborah & Tom received Gold Medals for Conceptual Gardens at the 2016 RHS Hampton Court Flower Show in London.
How can I get involved with The Carbon Path?
This interactive garden project is evolving for delivery from 2020.There is strong interest from various locations and organisations wanting to support this opportunity to catapult climate change into “everyday spaces” in major global cities. If you wish to support The Carbon Path please contact:
