Gender, Generation and Climate Change (GENERATE): Creative Approaches to Building Inclusive and Climate Resilient Cities in Uganda and Myanmar

Lead Research Organisation: University of Leeds
Department Name: Sch of Geography

Abstract

GENERATE will combine and mobilise social science and the arts to strengthen the impact and inclusivity of climate resilient urban governance. As catastrophic and slow-onset climate events emerge and increase across the world, and growing numbers migrate to urban centres, social inequalities - including gender - will manifest in uneven impacts of climate change. GENERATE aims to broaden and deepen current approaches to gender in climate policy and practice and urban governance, which tend to neglect age as a variable, and frequently equate gender solely with women (and poor rural women in particular), often excluding the experiences of men and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex people. This first systematic and arts-based exploration of the 'gender-age-urban' interface of climate change is distinctive in bringing together applied arts and social science methodologies to explore how gender and age intersect and manifest in inequalities. It will deliver critical new evidence on how gendered, sexualised and generational patterns and structures of exclusion can increase urban residents' vulnerability to climate change and reduce their ability to benefit equitably from climate action and sustainable development.

Focusing on two countries at high risk: Uganda and Myanmar, GENERATE will build a creative, feminist and participatory research framework that brings together child, adult and elder perspectives over time from six secondary cities. Bringing together interdisciplinary teams of researchers, artists, urban communities and key stakeholders from the UK, Uganda and Myanmar, GENERATE will use participatory arts-based methods grounded in ethnographic principles (interpretative, immersive, critical, feminist, reflexive) to develop new empirical, theoretical and methodological insights critical to meeting the UK's commitment and obligations to providing the evidence-base needed to fulfil the Sustainable Development Goals. The project will investigate how combining participatory arts and social science techniques together can strengthen the potential of action-based research to tackle the global challenges of gender equality and climate change.

GENERATE will investigate different perspectives on the 'gender-age-urban' interface from 'above' (international, national, regional and local policymakers, institutions, governance) and 'below' (day-to-day experiences and practices of people living in urban settings). In so doing it will increase understanding of how climate change in the city is not only a gendered experience, but also a generational one; mediated by (social) age and other intersecting markers of identity including sexuality, (dis)ability, ethnicity, religion, marital status, migration and socio-economic status. It will creatively apply findings to bridge these different perspectives in order to explore more socially just ways of transforming gender inequalities in climate action; and examine how creative methodologies can challenge discriminatory norms and practices and raise the profile and participation of marginalised groups in urban climate planning and policymaking. Working in partnership with stakeholders from government ministries, (inter)national institutions, urban authorities and the third sector, GENERATE will co-devise, pilot and evaluate arts-led, contextually-relevant and evidence-informed strategies for accommodating growing urban populations more equitably and driving the social transformation necessary to achieve gender equality and broader social justice.

Planned Impact

1. PARTICIPANTS & URBAN COMMUNITIES: By using sustained, interactive, arts-based methodologies, GENERATE expects to achieve significant socio-cultural impact among participants from marginalized urban communities in Uganda and Myanmar. Through a combination of training, action-based focus group discussions, and creative research activities to explore experiences, norms and practices, participants will gain capability, knowledge and skills to look critically at inequitable gender and generational norms and relations, self-advocate, engage with stakeholders at multiple scales, and be supported in building cohesion, knowledge and effective actions to tackle inequalities. Enhanced research and advocacy capacity will empower them to attract future development and pursue wider community advocacy and action. Of equal importance are wider publics engaging with peer research activities and arts-led public engagement events and discussions. Their concerns will be made visible and represented to local/national policy-makers, and they will be supported in taking multilateral action towards gender-transformative climate resilience.

2. PARTNERING DECISION-MAKERS & PRACTITIONERS: Policymakers and practitioners working on delivering gender equality and climate action will gain skills and experience in creative new methodologies and benefit as members of technical working groups, national committees, and audiences of arts-led knowledge exchange. They will benefit through participating in workshops and events to better understand community priorities, perspectives and contexts for change. This will enable them to better relate to and serve the communities in question; to recognise and apply more complex intersectional approaches to gender that address age and sexuality; and establish new avenues for community consultation and participation of minority groups. Creative knowledge exchange, freely-accessible project outputs, stakeholder workshops and national forums will improve networking, relationships and sharing of best practices, and organisational cultures through charting changing norms and behaviour in policy and third sector institutions, and enhance inclusivity, effectiveness and sustainability of gender and climate programmes. Myanmar's 'Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan 2016-2030' includes 'inclusive and integrated- development' as key principles for a 'climate-resilient, inclusive nation', and while Uganda's 'National Climate Change Bill' is in development, its 'National Climate Change Policy' addresses 'cross-cutting issues' including gender. GENERATE's evidence and research communities will contribute to these key policy priorities.

3. RESEARCH USERS, LOBBYISTS & POLICYMAKERS: To maximise the potential for transformation GENERATE will co-design, pilot and evaluate arts-led and evidence-informed strategies for gender-transformative climate resilience. Through making these (and underpinning evidence) available to policymakers and target audiences in the UK, Uganda and Myanmar - and those working in other developing country contexts - we expect these to be replicated and reach a large number of beneficiaries over time as end-users continue to invest in and implement these approaches across developing world contexts. Project outputs (reports, artistic outputs, open-access academic publications, website, toolkits) will be freely accessible to research users, lobbyist organisations and policymakers at different scales (from governance and policy at the scale of the city to the nation) to extend and deepen the knowledge base that supports evidence-informed policy making and implementation, and widen global accessibility to findings and best practices among non-specialised end-users. GENERATE will deliver theoretical and methodological benefits to UK academics working within and across disciplines on gender and/or climate change in developing country contexts (see Academic Beneficiaries section).

Title Being Queer in an island of a thousand mosques 
Description A series of 4 half-day and 1 full-day workshops with the 20 participants from the LGBTQ community in Mataram, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. We explored various topics in each of the workshops including: climate change and health; gender and climate change, discrimination towards the LGBTQ community, self acceptance, ideal future in the eyes of the LGBTQ community. Ilda Karwayu provided training in creative writing and then edited the stories into a collection entitled: 'Being Queer in an Island of a Thousand Mosques'.

Impact We also explored how young people can use social media particularly instagram to raise awareness about the impact of climate change. The participants valued the opportunity to share their stories and to express different experiences through the medium of writing. So far, with regard to dissemination we have a limited audience (so far) to protect participants, but many scholars have already asked if they can access the stories (all name are pseudonym). We are carefully scoping out a dissemination strategy to seek support for queer communities in Indonesia, but with recent legislation we are mindful to protect our participants. 
 
Title Bidi Bidi by Philip Peter Kairu 
Description Collage commissioned as part of the See Change exhibition. Currently on display at the Uganda Museum, in the See Change book, and part of the online exhibition. In the words of the artist: To communicate my ideas on clear thinking, I focused on themes of migration, settlement, population, and refugees. David N. Tshimba's article provided a well-articulated explanation of the interaction between population growth and its impact on the ecology, specifically in the context of refugee camps. I employed a dry leaf and a fresh leaf as the base materials for my work, but found that the green leaf did not adequately communicate the message I intended to convey in my collage. Therefore, I chose the dry leaf because it effectively illustrated the direct impact of massive settlement on once-green areas. However, I encountered the challenge of representing the borders and boundaries of the Bidi Bidi refugee camp, a critical area of focus in my work. To overcome this obstacle, I emulated the satellite effect to create a pattern and accurately depict the area through merging and layering the dry and green leaf.

Impact Together, these collages possess a unique narrative that speaks to the significance of how climate change has impacted aspects of our world that may not have been initially considered, such as the LGBTQ community. While they were made from various articles, they serve as a powerful reminder of the impact of climate change on our world, as well as the importance of continuing to explore and understand these important issues, as well as the need for creatives to use materials and resources that are readily available to them, as I did to illustrate the climate change impacts. We are collecting impact data at the moment. 
 
Title Building an Inclusive and Climate Resilient Banjarmasin: Spontaneous Theatre 
Description This day of spontaneous theatre arose out of a series of 2 half-day and 2 full-day workshops co-facilitated by GENERATE and inSPIRASI NTB held with Women head of household, single parents and ex-migrant workers community in Lombok. The workshops were held in Mataram, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.

Impact We also discussed challenges, stereotypes and barriers faced by women head of households, single parents as well as migrant workers. Participants said the workshops were a safe place for them to talk and share all their experiences as women heads of households/single parents without being judged or become a gossip that spread around the neighbourhood. Participants were always enthusiastic to come and share everyday life burdens as a woman in the society or household, the cultural and social constraints that limit their access. The spontaneous theatre was filmed in parts and shared on social media accounts of local civil society organisations, reaching well over 1000 views, and different comments and reactions which are currently being gathered. 
 
Title City Yange Naawe (The City is Yours and Mine) Exhibition

Title Cli-Mates of Change by Ann Grace Apiita, Christine Akello Opat, Eric Emokor 
Description Cli-Mates of Change is a green advocacy drama written to support schools, households, communities, sectors across Uganda and beyond understand climate change and devise sustainable measures to cope. Written by Ann Grace Apiita, Christine Akello Opat, Eric Emokor. In the drama synopsis attached, the initial focus is on the location, and the livelihood of the characters and how these components intensify climate change and other environmental issues. Most communities around the Lake Kyoga region in Apac district, other surrounding districts and even across Kampala (the capital city of Uganda) have built their houses on wetlands. The locals continue to carry out farming and agricultural practices on fragile ecosystems like wetlands and destroying forests to meet fuel needs. The destruction and mismanagement of wetlands therefore, (partly due to inadequate knowledge of the local communities) has impacted on biodiversity: loss of birds, fish, insects, plant species among other factors, and worsened climate change impacts for example, with the floods that eventually claimed the lives of the locals depicted in the drama. Secondly, the social fabric, culture and gender disparities are demonstrated right from many households, and diverse institutions that promote patriarchal systems, not only in the northern region but all regions across Uganda. From the family unit, the male species are exposed to so many opportunities such as education, career development, political/leadership, economic prospects - ownership of land and other assets unlike their female counterparts. During the COVID-19 pandemic, cases of gender-based violence also increased substantially and it stems from gender disparities that grow right from families and flow into communities and eventually institutions. Although the two journalists arrived in the Luo community of Apac, to cover news of the devasting floods that claimed the lives of the locals, they equally played a key role in dismantling the gender inequality toward the girl child. This is demonstrated by their determination and courage to challenge intergenerational cultural norms and promote conversations about supporting the education of the vulnerable girl child instead of the social arrangements that were made by the clan elders to betroth her to a wealthy village clan chief. It resulted into the girl child becoming an instrumental social agent of change in her school. Lastly, the initiative highlights the dangers of using Kerosene for lighting and cooking. Generally, the unsustainable use of coal, oil and gas through human-driven activities globally have led to the adverse impacts of climate change that are experienced currently. In most rural and urban communities in Uganda, like in Kampala, charcoal/fuelwood is consumed highly by households, learning institutions among others. For lighting houses, some communities still use dirty and poisonous sources of fuel such as Kerosene yet inhaling the smoke and soot produced causes pulmonary heart and lung diseases hence a health danger to communities. Other dangers caused using Kerosene include destruction of houses, property if not monitored well - an example is the destruction of the kitchen that belonged to the guardian of the orphaned children who lived in Kampala city. Therefore, the drama advocates for the use of renewable energy sources and technologies such as solar lamps or lighting appliances which are clean, accessible, sustainable, and affordable to low-income communities whether in rural or urban communities. The use of clean energy helps substantially in mitigating climate change and supporting communities to cope with climate change and environmental impacts. In addition, encouraging initiatives such as entrepreneurship opportunities as well as football for environmental advocacy or climate change mitigation are prioritized. In conclusion, the advocacy project responds to all the themes of climate change, environmental issues, gender, life in cities as elaborated above.

Title Climate and Menstruation by Egessa Dervin 
Description The illustration represents the dangerous menstrual hygiene management options during disasters and natural catastrophes caused by climate change. Characterised by lack of privacy girls often ignore protection change times, and the lack of access to clean water posses a life threatening impact upon the hygiene of the genitalia of the girls and women. For example in Madagascar due to the climate, it only rains twice a year, women resort to using unclean muddy brown water for washing their menstrual hygiene materials, a troubling thing among other taboo norms of the culture.ii THE PANELS; ? The first panel panel shows the risky menstrual hygiene management in drought areas like Madagascar where it only rains twice a year and girls and women resort to dirty water stored up in reservoirs to wash their menstrual items, and genitalia. ? The second represents the risky improvising of menstrual kits during natural disasters such as landslides and flooding rivers like in Kasese, Buduuda (Uganda)such cause limited access to menstrual hygiene kits leading to use of leaves grass, old rugs as protection and cleaning material, which is dangerous for the health of the girls and women. ? The third represents lack of privacy in displacement camps (post disaster situations) in which girls and women find it hard to change and wash their protection , an d therefore have to walk long distances away from the male counterparts so as to have their basic menstrual hygiene need met.

Title Eka dan Hujan (Eka and rain) by Mama Atha 
Description This video monologue - Eka and Rain's work is inspired by the story of Eka, a trans woman who lived in Kampung Duri and who sang for a dozen years and who has now died. The rainy season and climate change were frightening specters for Eka, because they prevented her from working around the city. Eka didn't have many options to access work, so to survive, Eka had to sing on the street from when she was a teenager until the end of her life. The mediocre income of buskers is exacerbated by climate change conditions, because if it rains Eka cannot sing. If the weather is hot, her body was prone to dehydration and illness."

Title End Gender Injustice Now by Kevin Ssemanda 
Description Climate change has long term implications most especially in Uganda which globally is considered as a third world country. One of those implications unlike the weather effects is gender violence among the Ugandan citizens. In Uganda for at least the last decade has seen the rise of gender injustice. The fact is: the economy of Uganda has been affected by climate change especially with how the families earn money or access opportunities to put food on the table. This abstract art piece is born out of the challenges the family faces when money is tight or if they have to be forced to move due to massive floods, destruction of farms etc. Usually the man is seen as the bread winner in the house especially in the less fortunate homes so when the income is low the woman usually lacks the necessary items to either care for the family or get the basic needs. This causes a rift with the man who intern gets frustrated because he worries about how to get money to feed his family and he gets scared that his wife will leave him for another man who is well off. This leads to gender violence and the woman being beaten fiercely. This leads the woman to cry on her own without any help or little help. This can be seen in the art piece with the woman shedding tears which fill up and consume her life in the end with the dark hand over her mouth. Women live in fear of reporting this injustice to the authorities because of fear of being left alone or even being killed in the process. With the corruption and impunity within the system, the women who suffer aren't really cared for even so the men who inflict this pain aren't afraid of the law catching up to them thus this issue goes unsolved leaving the women powerless to stand up for themselves.

Title Gender injustice by Mubiru Denis 
Description Graphic art piece: "Evidence shows that women are generally more vulnerable to the negative impacts of climate and gender in justice but through improved health care , education and representation in government society can adapt more quickly and easily to the impacts of a changing climate. A country that can quickly build defences to protect against rising sealevels may be less vulnerable to the negative impacts of flooding than a country that cannot. But if the social -cultural structure s that deprive women of access to resources, decision making, information,agencies are restructured then the vulnerability of women to climate and gender injustice is reversed." Denis Mubiru's vibrant, expressionistic works narrate the personal and the public life stories of everyday Africans. Chaotic, raw and colourful, Denis's style encapsulates a gritty examination of contemporary urban African issues: economic inequality, human rights, social stratification, the environment and evolving personal relationships. Denis, a graduate of Nkumba University, intertwines his vivacious, almost garish use of colours with raw brushstrokes to convey the overwhelming chaos of life. He is an explorer of contemporary Africa: his visual texts spark dialogue about what it truly means to be here. His imagery is potent: mixing the abstract with the obvious and thereby creating a forceful story expressed on canvas. Born and raised in Kampala, Uganda, Denis's paintings are often an exploration of Africa in transit: whether it be on a micro scale, by taking a kamunye or on a macro scale, with emerging economies. Denis's interest in transportation, both physical and psychological, is evident in his art, creating works dedicated to Kampala's Matatu (motorbike taxi) culture. His imagery of transit, the vehicles, the luggage, the people, the movement, is all indicative of our need to constantly be in motion, a state that he ascribes to contemporary Africa in particular. Denis has participated in numerous exhibitions both in Uganda, other countries in Africa and abroad. He is swiftly developing a strong following and collectors base who are expecting exciting things from this young and talented artist.

Title I Can't Breathe by Philip Peter Kairu 
Description Collage commissioned as part of the See Change exhibition. Currently on display at the Uganda Museum, in the See Change book, and part of the online exhibition. In the words of the artist: "I can't breathe" was prompted by my research into the critical issue of the Black Lives Matter movement and the All Lives Matter campaign. While preparing for my final year exhibition at the Margaret Trowell School of Industrial Fine Art, where I studied photography, my lecturer encouraged me to use current issues in a different context to highlight other related concerns that require attention. In producing this collage, I sketched various concepts and engaged with friends to gain insight into their experiences with disabilities. Through these interactions, I became aware of the numerous unresolved issues surrounding the rights of disabled individuals, as well as how often their experiences are ignored. Furthermore, I drew on my experience photographing Mutuba Pascio, a disabled man who spoke about how programs and policies often mention disability concerns but fall short of implementing them. Mutuba Pascio was my collaborator during the 2021 UPPA mentorship program.

GENERATE invites applicants to submit a piece of artistic work and an accompanying description that explains what inspired the work and how it interprets the theme of "Climate and Gender (In)Justice in the City" in the context of urban Uganda or Indonesia. During the past few months July to September, 2021, the weather has been unpredictable with heavy rains, and sometimes very hot days with temperatures of up to 28 degrees on some days. I photographed this image on 2nd September, 2021, a very hot day and titled it photo, if it makes you comfortable, do it because I felt the heat that day, and could feel the dilemma of this lady. She may be judged for almost undressing in public, yet people did not consider the un bearing heat caused by the gradual global warming that has cut across the world. While men can unzip or even remove their shirts during such seasons of heat, women are judged differently. During this time, Forest fires gulfed Texas caused by heat, floods were reported in Europe during summer.

The city compound has got vegetation cover with in the city gardens that include flowers that are tended to by mostly women unlike men; there are different tree species that help in capturing carbon dioxide from vehicle fumes, industrial fumes thereby purifying the city air, soil is captured through proper water infiltration by the tree roots and soil erosion is stopped in the city. Also, the trees aid in storing carbon; this help in modifying the climate promoting justice. The vegetation cover ensure timely rain fall and provide habitation to wildlife. There is production of food through urban farming among the city dwellers which reduce on the cost of production and living and this ensures gender justice as both men and women indulge themselves in this. Construction activities of mainly sky scrappers that are so common favour men greatly to work on such buildings and this promotes fender injustice since women are looked at as the weak ones. Cost of living in slums around the city tend to be cheap favoring low income earners to stay there and as they do business in the city, development can be assured. This promotes gender justice.

Title Informal workers and climate change in Yogyakarta 
Description 4 half-day workshops with 50-60 maids and informal workers in Yogyakarta discussed climate change, gender and health risks experienced by maids and informal workers. Maids highlighted the uncertainty in their jobs and the health risks they experience as well as the lack of social and healthcare assistance. The output was 8 montages (collage) telling about the body and health risk from their works, climate change and its impact to the body. We also explored about their hope and expectation, support system and what makes them happy and resilience.

Title Lengger dance and orang utan: an unwanted Indonesian heritage? by Achmad Dimas 
Description "Lengger dance, the original art of Banyumas, is a traditional dance that is played by 2 to 4 men like women who are dressed in typical clothes. Lengger is one proof that in Indonesia, those with different gender and sexual orientations walked in harmony with the community without feeling discriminated against and even losing the opportunity to live, they were immigrants who were not supposed to eliminate the original identity of the country they colonized. .. the orangutan who was in the arms of the lengger dancer, he presented Pony, the poor orangutan who became a sex slave who was forced to serve dozens of men every day with his body chained to the bed. In accordance with the title of my work, lengger dancers and orangutans are an unwanted Indonesian heritage and are only used as entertainment, slowly the area where orangutans live is being engulfed in flames due to global warming and the lengger culture is disappearing due to foreign cultural influences, it's time we all move on this suppression of equality."

Participants reported the positive impacts of sharing their experiences, discovering shared experience, and the joy and fun of engaging in this indigenous form of oral storytelling. The facilitator and his assistant reported discovering new ways of sharing madihin, never before working with people living with disability, learning new techniques for public engagement, and all participants and facilitators reported learning new knowledge about climate change, coping mechanisms, and how to express their stories in different ways. New connections arose between participants leading to new support networks, especially amongst those living with disability accessing new support systems and volunteers. As a research team we collected interesting visual/oral data. 
 
Title Mama Nankya by Aida Namukose 
Description 'Mama Nankya', a photograph by Aida Namukose. GENERATE invites applicants to submit a piece of artistic work and an accompanying description that explains what inspired the work and how it interprets the theme of "Climate and Gender (In)Justice in the City" in the context of urban Uganda or Indonesia. As with most societal injustices, the brunt of climate change is typically bared by women, especially low-income women. Ill placed landfills are a common feature in Ugandan cities, and a visit to one of them reveals that the majority of people that dwell and work there are women and children. The correlation between gender injustice and climate change is not one that's typically highlighted or written about, and I too was surprised to find many women of all ages and young children working in the highly hazardous conditions that are Kampala's landfills. These landfills release large amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas that contributes towards climate change as well as health problems for those that are overly exposed to it. I asked this lady (mama Nankya) for permission to photograph her because I believed that her (and other women's) reality in this spaces is an important one to share, talk about and resolve. I'm always interested in combining my artistic skills and activism interests (particularly) for African women and telling the vastly hidden stories is what inspired this piece and the rest in the series. I believe it highlights important realities such as; economic inequality and the growing issue of garbage disposal in our cities and what that means for the environment as well as the people that inhabit it.

Title Maybe Never by Farid Hamka 
Description Gender injustices happen through the lens of eco-anxiety. Indonesian women, no matter how settled in their careers, are expected to be a nurturing caregiver for the family. They are expected to make babies and rear them to adulthood. Through this short story, I argue that in response to climate change, women are affected differently through their personalised response to ecological problems. Although some women want to choose motherhood, it nevertheless scares and burdens them. The story also highlights the pernicious effects of gender roles that create hyper-masculine, exploitative men. A reckoning with climate issues need to take into account these gender-based pressures.

Title Mlayu-Mlayu (to run/to go off) by Ivy Londa & Dinar Bayu 
Description Juni, a woman who stitches her husband's fishing net. Since the dredging and construction of a coal jetty near where she and her family lives in East Roban, Batang, Central Java, her husband's daily catch has been extremely depleted. She used the word 'mlayu-mlayu' to describe the fishes around her husband's catching area. It is a javanese word for 'to run or to go off'. The fishes that once they relied their lives upon, are now gone. Involuntarily trade she and her family have to make, in order to supply 'more' electricity to the cities. This artwork... A remembering of Juni's story, whose story might never be heard in the crowd and cheers of development victories. When we wake up from the morning sun, the story lingers in our mind about the potential of clean energy that the government neglected to answer. This perhaps speaks out all of our stories, in the name of The Brighter Indonesia, do not dim her own beacon."

Title Nalubaale Takes Over by Kanyike Edgar 
Description Between April and June of 2020, there was flooding on the shores of Lake Nalubaale a.k.a. Lake Victoria. In Uganda, Mulungu was one of the shores that was flooded in this time. The community in Mulungu was a very vibrant space of businesses, homesteads and a lifestyle that had existed on the shores for generations. This very live community was pushed away and hundreds of people lost their properties to this "tragic" change as the lake slowly took over this space. Though the people of Mulungu were severely affected, a few months after the flooding; after the new shore line was created; after some of the residents had rebuilt their lives(on a piece of land close by) and everything was back to business-as-usual, their previous home(or what was left of it) was turned into a wasteland that is heavily polluted with plastic. It is clear that no one stopped to question what could have caused this flooding, or what could cause the next (or an uglier event). We have not educated ourselves about the consequences of our actions towards our environment. We (the city) have not made ourselves aware of the pollution that is a threat to us and the space we occupy, even with such a brutal experience

Description I made this song based on my worries as a woman. That I am not yet a mother. But I'm trying to make a work that hopefully can represent the anxiety of many 'mother' figures in Indonesia and the world. A figure who is often forgotten how much she contributed to educating her children and husband. A figure who also plays an important role in protecting the environment wherever she lives. A person whose warmth can soothe but also listen. A character that is often forgotten. Yet her anxiety was so deep.

Title On the Bucket Towards School by Farrah Eva Nabila 
Description "Climate change has the most severe impact on women from the lowest social groups. The gender role in the nuances of the short story ""On the Bucket Towards School"" is a role played by the character ""Mamak"", Mamak in Javanese is called Mother, the character ""Mamak"" here is a widow who has a daughter who is located in the character ""I " currently studying, both have their own challenges in dealing with climate change that occurs in coastal areas; North Sea of Java, Kampung Beting, West Java, Indonesia. The character between ""Mamak"" and ""I"" implies a social response that actively plays various gender roles as an adaptation of the Coastal Flood or Rob Flood which has become an evolutionary phenomenon to this day. ... This climate change affects the productivity of the "Mamak" character, who was originally a fisherman, now works to pick up trash. The condition faced by the ""Mamak"" character is an illustration of the changing role of gender in the adaptation process to the Flood Rob environment which shows the double burden of the ""Mamak"" character. This burden causes gender inequality. Likewise with the character ""I"" who entered the social and political space. The "I" character strives to overcome the challenges of climate change by getting an education. Where the character ""I"" is the hope for women's civilization to dynamically enter the empty spaces."

Title Sustainable building in response to climate change and gender (in)justice in the city by DOREEN ARINAITWE 
Description The impacts of climate change; poverty plays a major role. Due to the living conditions of the poor, they are often more exposed to hazards, and have fewer options to avoid, or cope with the impacts. As, according to UNDP, more than 70 per cent of the world's poor are female, the share of women among the most vulnerable is dis-proportionably high. Moreover, there are additional factors indicating that vulnerability involves heavy gender differentials that need to be taken into consideration. At the local level, a range of inequalities and injustices are directly apparent and tangible. In most cities around the world, the divide between the privileged and underprivileged is as large as the global divide between developed and least developed countries. While a small proportion of citizens claim the major share of land for housing, mobility and recreation, the majority of others are crowded together in slums yet the carbon footprint is mostly caused by the rich with luxurious houses building with concrete and other materials that emit carbon in the air. The size of the carbon footprints of different citizens ranges from very large to virtually zero. The poorest groups, such as slum dwellers, usually have the smallest carbon footprint, and, moreover, they often live in areas most exposed to climate hazards, such as landslide or flood prone areas. These inequalities are related to income, class, age, race, ethnicity, health status, etc. Within all this inequalities, gender leads to a further differentiation, and in most cases, leads to different impacts of climate change on women and men. Within low-income populations, women often have particular vulnerabilities as a result of gender-related inequalities. Vulnerability depends on exposure to the negative effects of climate variability, and the capacity to avoid these effects or cope with them. This capacity depends on income, assets, education and knowledge, and here again, there is a gender bias all over the world, and women have lower incomes. In some countries facing constraints due to cultural patterns and norms, women are responsible for the bulk of unpaid care work. They are responsible for climatically sensitive tasks such as securing food, water and energy which ensures the well-being of a household. When climate related disasters strike the poorest families living in slums, the workload for women and girls increases and they tend to miss out on opportunities. The effects of climate change such as drought and floods and rising temperatures in the city put greater pressure on women to shoulder the adverse consequences on the household. The building construction industry too is mostly dominated by men; therefore women have a lower chance of creating solutions to climate change problems that affect them. The Project Deriving inspiration from the Northern Ugandan People's way of construction, where families construct their hats next to each other and using mad, I created a modern house with circles inter-connecting with each other from one space to another. The material and technique used for this sample house is rammed earth (same material that was used to construct the great wall of china, still standing strong) which is stronger, faster, cheaper and more aesthetically pleasing than concrete buildings. Concrete is the most commonly used material in cities yet the most destructive. As a material that creates the majority of the world's bridges, roads, dams, and construction, concrete releases an extreme amount CO2 each year, has a way shorter life span than rammed earth and cannot be recycles. It's the highest consumed product on earth besides water. Until the overall emissions are cut worldwide, the environment will continue to be polluted with over 4 billion tons of carbon dioxide annually due to this industry. Rammed earth walls are constructed by the compacting (ramming) of moistened subsoil into place between temporary formwork panels. When dried, the result is a dense, hard monolithic wall. A vernacular green building material as well as in more recent 'Eco houses', rammed earth is an ancient form of construction. There remain plentiful examples of the form around the world, evidence that rammed earth is a successful and durable way of building. A few historical rammed earth buildings are to be found in the UK. The green roof on the house has many benefits at economic, ecological and societal levels. A green roof provides ? a rainwater buffer ? purifies the air ? reduces the ambient temperature ? regulates the indoor temperature ? saves energy ? and encourages biodiversity in the city. Green roofs are part of climate-proof construction. Therefore; addressing climate change issues through building and construction will improve on the environment and peoples well-being thus women will be affected less or not at all by the effects of climate change.

Title TABU- FROM WASTE TO BEAUTY by NANDYOSE IDAH 
Description A pictorial collage of my mood board that shows fashion ideas made from wastes. From Images 01; these are photographs I took of poorly disposed off plastics and other wastes. Clearly disposed into the environment which is clearly an injustice to the climate. This is a common trait in the city of Uganda (reference to an area called Kisuggu-Makindye Division) and you will always find waste in every community. Some communities have their wastes disposed off along the road side even when the authorities have made several attempts to have these wastes collected. I was able to collect the plastics and made an outfit as seen in images 04 and 05. Images 04 & 05 show contemporary fashion work I made with plastics rebelliously worn by a model to create awareness about plastic pollution in my community whilst giving the model a bold and confident look. And image 05 is an interpretation of woman wearing an outfit made with plastics with an illustration of being held captive by the same people who were supposed to protect them. That is how being female feels like in a country like Uganda where several attempts have been made to find for gender equality. We are under the impression that a lot of impact has been made but deep down we all know that woman is still held captive and we are a long way from attaining this equality. Image 02 & 03 are an interpretation of the true beauty of a justified protected climate and a free woman; these images exhibit the beauty of up cycling wastes into other useful accessories i.e. I up cycled plastic lollipop sticks into Earrings that are seen boldly worn in image 03.

Title The Burnt Out End of a Rainy Day by Davina Philomena Kawuma 
Description GENERATE invited applicants to submit a piece of artistic work and an accompanying description that explains what inspired the work and how it interprets the theme of "Climate and Gender (In)Justice in the City" in the context of urban Uganda or Indonesia. 'The Burnt-out end of a Rainy Day' revolves around Yago, a young Ugandan rural-urban immigrant trying to make ends meet in Kampala: it follows her daily routine, how it is impacted by the flooding that follows close on the heels of a rainstorm. 'The Burnt-out end of a Rainy Day' responds to the theme of 'Climate and Gender (In)Justice in the City' by registering some of the ways in which an extreme weather event caused by climate change disproportionately affects women like Yago, and her neighbours, who rent one-bedroomed apartments in a tenement - women considered by popular imagination to be part of Kampala's 'poor, working class,' and therefore whose vulnerabilities to unfair employment practices, gendered violence, and exploitation are likely to aggravated by natural disasters that arise out of unnaturally irresponsible use of natural resources.

Title The Change of Your Town by Agaba Solomon Peabo 
Description Creative Collage. Earth was created with words, almost everything starts with the tongue and speech. Although climate change affects everybody, it is gender neutral. Too often women are primarily seen as victims of climate change and with the power of speech we can change the stereotype of what is happening. It starts with us, me, you. You are THE CHANGE OF YOUR TOWN.

Title The City We Must Save by Hangiriza Benedict 
Description A poem. "I have lived in Kampala for the last 6 years and I have seen how the effects of climate change coupled with poor planning by the leaders tasked with running the city have made it difficult to live in this City. Being the Capital city, all people can be found in this City with most of them leaving villages to make a better life in this hub of business. There's congestion in the city and plans to have all commuter taxis and motorcycles shift from the main city have never been implemented due to political reasons. The streets during rush hours are impassable. The streets are also occupied by street children; mainly those who fled their homes during the Civil war that ravaged the Northern part of Uganda. Roadside hawkers (mostly women) roam the streets for survival. The City is located around the central part of Uganda which receives heavy rainfall due to Lake Victoria and River Nile that are close by. Due to it's geography, it experiences flash floods and roads are always inaccessible and homes in the slums are inhabitable. Due to the high levels of unemployment, most children are forced to work in sand mines that are located in the suburbs. These sandmines collapse sometimes and lives are lost. Being a city of the poor, women are targeted by rapists and even killed. These Climate Change and Gender Injustices have plagued a city that has given away most of its green landscapes to foreign developers. The Agency responsible for Environment Protection has been described as "toothless" on many occasions because it has failed to execute it's mandate. And also little has been done by the Ministry of Gender, Labor and Social Development in ensuring that women are supported and protected in the city and across the Country. More ways have to be used to call for action and implement measures to remove all forms of Injustice against women. I have been involved in small campaigns as a student to call for justice for example justice for girls that were being sexually harassed by lecturers. I have also been involved in environment protection activities by planting trees and supporting the use of reusable paper bags across businesses. This is what I have done on a personal level and I hope through partnerships with other activists we can bring about behavioral changes in our communities in the city and the whole of Uganda."

Title To whatever happens man plays a role by Wasswa James 
Description To whatever happens man plays a role, the injustice nature shows to us is because we failed to do justice to nature in the first place, in the photograph it depicts flooding which comes along man putting up structures in not only wetlands like swamps but also blocking water channels with rubbish and sometimes those of which include plastics which block the water channels. So, floods happening in cities nature is showing us the injustice we have presented and it's the better time to act back by doing the needful like not only managing waste disposal but also look into how water has to freely move in times of rainy seasons without being blocked

Title Transformations by Nath Niyitegeka 
Description My art piece has different colors on in it, I will start with climate change and environmental issues. We have golden brown color with few plants, this means that if we become more Mother-Nature-friendly and plant trees even if at least one person can plant one later on our environment can be greener, I reflect on green color on top of brown. Once the environment is green we can face less problems and issues related to the climate change such us disasters. Behind the green color we see a dark color. That color is small, this means that most people do not give importance to the issue of climate change and do not take it as serious, however the longer they continue to have that mindset the longer the problem of climate change will continue. We shall keep facing serious problems of climate change, air pollution, diseases, and not only will people die because of this, but animals and the beauty of this world will disappear. The color of gold is big and represents technology. This world is moving very fast and it has a focus on technology which is good, but it should be at the same level as the protection of the environment, which can bring a positive impact upon impacting climate change. But unfortunately, there is often one focus today and it is upon technology. Today every country wants to have more factories. This has positives and negative consequences. I will give you an example from Kampala, Uganda. The factories there are good for giving people jobs, but they should not be where most people stay. The proximity between these factories and the location's where people live causes respiratory diseases; this can lead to people dying silently as they lack the financial means to prevent the negative consequences of living near these factories that pollute the areas around them. Another issue is that of automobiles, vehicles, and motorcycles. In Kampala, where I spent almost nine years before moving to the United States, many people are interested in owning a vehicle even when they don't own a house or have anywhere to park it. It is a problem of mindset because they think that it is a symbol of being rich. I have a fear that soon the number of vehicles will be larger than the number of people! This causes issues of air pollution now, and will make the situation worse in the future. Life in the city is not as good as it looks due to the large number of the population, vehicles, and factories. It is important that the problem of climate change and environmental challenges are given due importance and the authorities do something to prevent these consequences in the future. Gender: My art piece has three faces on it. The first person is in the mortar and you can see legs. The second one is in the blue color and the third one is in orange yellow and red, look at the left side of the art pieces. The one in mortar is related to traditional transitioning and African myth, when we were young people in the community use to make a bad joke that if you spend one night in mortar your sex will change. The following day, if you are a girl you would become a boy and if you are a boy you would become a girl. This is a serious problem that I think every transgender person has experienced in their childhood and many are still struggling with in their adulthood, especially in Africa. Some take it as a joke, while others try it, only to find that nothing happened! Others are still struggling to access surgeries and medication, but this is hard and sometimes impossible, especially in many countries in Africa. In Uganda there is a lot of homophobia and transphobia, with transgender people in particular targeted. So, people think that if they are whom they want to be and to "pass", they can reduce the many risks they face and find joy in being who they want to be. The problems of transphobia and homophobia are similar to the problem of climate change. Both are important issues which cause a lot of harm, we need to allow people to live in peace, protect the environment, and allow the world to become a more beautiful place.

Title Tumpah Harga by Christabel Annora Paramita Parung 
Description "'Tumpah Harga' is an audio-visual work consisting of instrumental music and pattern-illustration that tells how the fast-fashion industry is killing our 'mothers' - the women, and our Mother Earth. The vast majority of garment workers in Indonesia - about 99% - are women, and this portrays a stereotype that women are responsible for domestic duties. The condition gets worse when these women are abused in their workplace, harassed, threatened, and even get underpaid for long hours of work. Yet, they could not say anything. Same thing happened to our dear Mother Earth. The exploitation has been going on for so long that we start to normalize it. The excessive waste, water depletion, and pollution are all over the place. Through this illustration and instrumental piece, I tried to portray how our 'mothers' are exploited for those things we call "fashion trends" that might go obsolete in no time. Ironic. In the video, I put a major chord as an opening, just to show "a dress". A simple one. The repetitive tones express how this dress is adored by everyone - that type of dress that you must own in your wardrobe. And the mood suddenly changed when the illustration of what was behind that Rp 100k dress was shown. A minor- horror-like tune to represent how I feel reading about these nightmares.

Title Untitled by Philip Peter Kairu 
Description Collage commissioned as part of the See Change exhibition. Currently on display at the Uganda Museum, in the See Change book, and part of the online exhibition. In the words of the artist: "Untitled" was a creative challenge that emerged from the impact of social media on the LGBTQ community. I set out to explore how individuals express their identities through pronouns and symbols, while also confronting significant difficulties and barriers to living openly and honestly. To celebrate the uniqueness of the LGBTQ community, I incorporated bright, colourful flowers and a thoughtfully crafted composition. I made multiple revisions and edits throughout the process, moving through areas where I knew I could access the colors of the rainbow. Drawing on the insightful observations of Diana Taremwa Karakire's article on the effects of climate change on the LGBTQ community, I aimed to create a visual representation of "who we really are." The withering petals and leaves also serve as a commentary on the inadequacy of current laws and policies that fail to safeguard and support this community.

Title What on god's green Earth by Fajar Zakri 
Description The poem is abstract and laden with imagery for the very reason that I do, in fact, envision myself just being tossed off at sea when the time has come to depart from my flesh prison. So it dips in and out between that dreamy, fantastical setting and laser-sharp social critique. I love to provoke, whether in my work of art or just in my day-to-day life, and I think that's exactly what the poem does. I hope it makes people think; but more importantly, I hope it makes people do something, whether in their personal capacity or on a grander scale. Change is not just up to an individual or a government or or an institution or an organization - it's up to all of us.

Title When Water Comes by Firdhan Aria Wijaya 
Description "This collage work captures the life of a woman living in the suburbs of Bandung, Indonesia and her access to food. During every rainy season, floods are almost inevitable where she lives. But now that she got more acquainted with it, she no longer tries to beat the flood - she has befriended the flood. She watches the stream of waters falling from the sky as she waits for a change to come. The flood in her area has become a recurring horror as the result of complex collisions among numerous aspects, such as the housing development and the climate change, the failure of water management, and the way most people treat waste as if it's something that is entirely separated from their lives."

Title Women and Water by Himbar Andriyani 
Description "Climate change has an impact on social change, also for women. For example, floods, droughts or reduced supplies of clean water. Housewives will find it difficult to run the wheels of their household life for cooking, washing dishes, washing clothes, drinking water supplies, etc. This work is a digital art photography in which I depict a housewife who is working to fulfill her household needs. Water plays a big role in completing the tasks of women as housewives. The hanging dried flowers symbolise the earth starting to dry up and lack of water supply if we do not take care of it properly"

Title Women are decks, bitches, streets, evil naughty, mistresses, women can only take care of the well, bed and kitchens! by Margaretta Novianty 
Description This collage addresses how climate change causes natural disasters that will exacerbate economic pressures in households. Women and children are the most disadvantaged parties. Psychologically, husbands who are burdened by economic pressure will make women as wives get physical, verbal, mental and even sexual violence. Women are lined up to be the first to be responsible for taking a quick action in a disaster. Taking care of children, taking care of the house and making a living are done at the same time. This conditions result in less time remaining for women to access training and skills development for them, in the end positioned women as powerless objects, against the powerful patriarchal culture of this country. (at the same time there is a fallacy belief) that women are decks, bitches, streets, streets, evil naughty, mistresses, obedience who can only take care of the well, bed and kitchens.

Description There have been numerous impacts associated with this award, but they are ongoing and we are in the process of monitoring and evaluating these impacts and ensuring we collect supporting evidence. This is therefore a work in progress. At present these impacts can be categorised in a three key ways: i) impacts on participants: we work with vulnerable communities in Indonesia and Uganda, including refugees and asylum seekers, informal workers, LGBTQ+ people, people living with disability, women, youth, older people, and indigenous and ethnic minorities. We have engaged these communities in data collection that is shaped by applied arts and ethnographic methodologies. This has given people multiply marginalised both socio-culturally and economically, the opportunity to critically explore their vulnerabilities to a changing climate and urban life, to gather together across social and geographic boundaries, and learn how to use different mediums of art to express themselves. They report: increased levels of confidence, self-worth, social cohesion, new support networks, better links to support organisations and stakeholders including city governments, urban planners, and activists, new tools with which to advocate for their communities, new knowledge about anthropogenic climate change and environmental and climate justice movements, leadership and communication skills, new livelihood skills, and new creative skills. Many report increased visibility- for example, a group we have partnered with in Jakarta, a collective of transgender women, on a Trans Super Heroes for Climate project, have received new funding, been invited to numerous events and workshops by diverse stakeholders from the British Embassy to Extinction Rebellion to Local Government, are sharing their insights and data collected with local and national academics, and have engaged in new environmental programmes and livelihoods. ii) impacts on stakeholders. We are in the process of using arts-led outputs to engage stakeholders including government officials, civil society, academics, journalists etc on the need for an inclusive and intersectional approach to climate action. We are using forms of cultural heritage, comics, music, fine art, illustration, theatrical performance, photography, film, social media reels, painting, poetry, and creative writing as tools for telling frequently unheard climate stories. The stakeholders we have engaged thus far have reported changed opinions towards vulnerable groups, increased awareness of how impacts of climate change are shaped by disability, gender, age, poverty, sexuality and so on, increased awareness of the need to engage in community dialogue and listen to socio-economically marginalised groups, the importance of age as well as gender as a variable to consider, the value of arts as a tool for telling climate stories. iii) impacts on policy: we are currently working with city governments and planners in Uganda and Indonesia about how to incorporate our findings into their climate change policy, city plans, and long- and short-term development plans. We are in the middle of this work, but have built relationships with city officials and mayors/governors across six cities, and collaboratively identified several opportunities for feeding directly into new policy documents, as well as working in partnership to identify challenges to implementation.

The global climate emergency is a crisis of culture. While the impacts of climate change can be destructive of cultural heritage in both its material and non-material forms, they also illustrate a failure in cultural relations, highlighting our chronic inability to work together to address the emergency at a global level. With less than a week until the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, we call for the foregrounding of culture and creative responses in the fight against climate change.

Results and Impact The COP26 Universities Network is a growing group of more than 55 UK-based
universities working together to raise ambition for tangible outcomes from the UN
COP26 Climate Change Conference. The Network will create lasting partnerships
and legacies that reach beyond this single event.
The Network's mission is to ensure that the UK academic sector plays an active
role in delivering a successful COP26, getting all players on track to deliver a zerocarbon, resilient world. We aim to do so by easing access to evidence and
academic expertise for Governments, NGOs, and other actors and by taking
action ourselves.
As part of this work, six months prior to the COP26 meeting in November 2021,
the COP26 Universities Network is hosting a virtual conference - Climate Exp0 - to
showcase UK and international research on aspects of climate change and climate
mitigation in the run-up to COP26.
The conference is taking place virtually between the 17th and 21st May 2021. Each
day is dedicated to one of five conference themes: Green Recovery; Nature-based
Solutions; Mitigation Solutions; Adaptation and Resilience; and Finance. This session will explore the UK's ability to prepare and adapt for a secure, safe
and sustainable future. Session discussion will focus on the key challenges
around adaptation and resilience, exploring interdisclinary research needs and
ability to anticipate, adapt and respond to changes, natural or man-made, short
or long-term, local or global. UK prosperity depends on the smooth and
sustainable functioning of complex infrastructures: transport; communications
networks; water, energy and waste utilities.

The workshop focused on environmental and climate (in)justice, with a focus on four themes: 1) economic wellbeing and livelihoods, 2) health and wellbeing, 3) ageing, 4) housing and homelessness. The workshop generated research data for the research project, gaining the insights and experiences of 10-15 community members. In addition to generating research data, the workshop provided a safe space for members of a marginalised and stigmatised community members to interact, discuss issues, build community, and enjoy being together. It also offered an opportunity for participants to learn more about climate change - an issue which is still often misunderstood or which people have limited access to knowledge about. More workshops were conducted with representatives of other communities within the LGBTQ+ population, and will culminate in an LGBTQ+ Environmental and Climate Justice conference. This will be the first of its kind globally, but especially within this region. All participants of this workshop were passionate about engaging in queering environmental and climate justice and incorporating this within their programming

Drawing on over six years of engagement in one Ugandan city, it asks how intergenerational creative practice can be used to simultaneously build new solidarities and disrupt norms that perpetuate deeply embedded inequalities. Set against the unfolding climate crisis, the final section looks to the future and the role of intergenerational research in building inclusive and resilient communities.
