April 20, 2020 (Provincetown, MA): Broto: Art-Climate-Science, Provincetown’s unique and third annual climate change conference, will take place entirely online May 16 and 17, 2020.

“Broto is about adaptation and momentum and the COVID crisis forced us to innovate away from our in-person conference to an online experience,” says producer Ian Edwards. “It’s important for us to continue this important conversation with our international experts and step up to this challenge. We’re excited for this opportunity and finding new audiences.”

The theme: Deep Time and its connection to climate strategy. Panels include:

1.     Deep Time & ClimateWhat is Deep Time and its relevance to Climate?

2.     Time as a MuseTime as a factor in creative thinking about climate — an experiment in “informing science”.

3.     TimefulnessThink like a geologist and save the world.

4.     COVID’s Eco-lesson in Behavior ChangeA  lesson in how society can quickly change behaviors in a crisis.

5.     Cathedral ThinkingHow are we motivated to start legacy projects so big that we will never see them finished?

6.     Selling Longtermism.  In a world dictated by short-term returns, how can art and science in collaboration make long-termism relevant to decisions today?
