Enjoy an interactive presentation with the impressive artwork of the Beehive Collective and get fascinated on the stories about beauty and destruction, big coal and resistance!
Climate change is damn real and we are all in it together, being a part of the cause as well as the consequences. But most of us fail to explain its dramatic complexity to people around the globe to get the greed fossil economy stopped. With their impressive art-based project, “The True Cost of Coal”, a 5 to 2,50 meter huge mosaic poster, the Beehive Collective tells the complex story of coal and industrialization, the story of the land and the miners in the coal-mining region of Appalachia (USA) and worldwide. „The True Cost of Coal“ depicts an endless amount of our own connections to coal and how deep it is rooted in our society. At the same time, the banner celebrates the diverse history of organized resistance, the courage of communities and the struggles for land, livelihood and self-determination. After all, it is also about the future, about alternatives, remediation and regeneration. The beautiful story-based graphics inspire many people around the world to take action on saving the land, the people and the planet we love. There will also be stories about coal- mining in Germany and the growing resistance movement. The two trainers are part of a self-organised europeanwide network of highly engaged educators and activists working with “The True Cost of Coal”.
