Project Description

On the Edge is an innovation theatrical and digital intervention which brings together research experts, artists and young people in order to explore young people’s eco-anxiety and empower them in the face of human-induced climate change. It stems from the collaboration between University and Hull and the National Youth Theatre first established as part of the UK Climate Resilience Programme funded Risky Cities project, developing this partnership in new and exciting ways not originally foreseen in the funding bid. It draws on key research findings from the Risky Cities project (and other projects within UKCR programme including MAGIC and ResilRisk), using high-quality interdisciplinary research to deliver meaningful impact and engagement with a new community of youth stakeholders and through them policy makers and government.
