COP16: Art in the Climate Change Village in Cancun

Most of the information, performances and talks in the village were available in Spanish only, primarily catering to local residents. However, the days were filled with mariachi music and lectures, and in the evening, grand concerts played on an outdoor stage accessible to all.

Within the exhibition pavilion, the art was as much motivated by PR as by climate change – Coca-cola had its own booth to plug its new “eco-friendly” bottles and coolers, the Nissan Leaf was on display, and many other companies collaborated with eco-artists to solidify their brand. Still, there’s no denying that a bottle-cap Quetzalcoatl, even if it is funded by a random phone company, is still something to be revel in. We hope that ultimately all this creativity will positively impact both culture and commerce.
