In my opinion, the book makes an outstanding contribution to the discipline of climate change, which is a threat affecting everyone and conflict resolution, that is a skill that we all need. The book says that individuals and communities can do a lot to prepare for climate change, understand how it will affect each geography, and devise methods to resolve the conflicts that will come about with such change. The idea is that all forms of art can help create awareness of the threat. Photography can record receding glaciers, more frequent and destructive hurricanes and tsunamis, and horrendous droughts. Theater can explain why such changes occur and how each individual can contribute to alleviating such threats.
While climate change affects us all and is the responsibility of all, the book sees art as another lens that can help convey the threat to the people, make them aware of the conflicts that climate change will create in our communities, and provide them with new tools to help transform, manage, and resolve such disputes.
The author's extensive research has demonstrated the usefulness of the recommended approach. By bringing together different aspects of her extensive interdisciplinary experience and expertise (from the law, climate change, conflict resolution, mediation, and others), the author presents us with a new way to look at climate change, improve awareness through the arts (literature, painting, photography, theater, music, dance, etc.), and give people the tools they need to identify, transform, and manage conflict.
Because we all have a responsibility to reduce the negative effects of climate change, an approach that can help communities to understand and neutralize climate change’s challenges and problems is a must-read for teachers and academics.
