Genetic scientist Dr Theodore Anagnostopoulos is no stranger to using creative and artistic approaches to communicate messages of sustainable solutions in response to global environmental challenges. Besides creating and staging plays on scientific topics for young audiences, he also undertook journeys to record the use of renewable energy which he presented through exhibitions and festivals.
As a result of his work in this field, Theodore was invited to participate in a capacity-building workshop in 2009 as part of the ASEF programme Connect2Culture, which links arts and culture to environmental issues. He will be back to take part in the ASEF-supported roundtable, A Climate for Change, part of the World Summit on Arts and Culture, which takes place in Melbourne, Australia, October 2011.
Of his experience in 2009 he says, “[it was] truly inspiring! Not only did I learn so much new stuff regarding team building, communication and sustainability, but also a strong network of climate leaders was created and several collaborations were established.”
