Come and meet Sarah Queblatin as she reflects on the role of creativity and artistic practice to help document the losses and damages caused by climate change.

Sarah’s work with climate vulnerable communities in the Philippines involves revitalising cultural heritage through ‘storymapping’ and the recognition of indigenous and traditional ecological knowledge. This process also protects and restores natural heritage through ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and adaptation. Weaving such relational tools with rational tools help scale solutions up, wide, and deep for resilient and regenerative futures. Sarah works with artists and communities, to shape ways to translate data into story through cultural memory and imagination, designing from the wisdom of past with the desired future in emergence.

Sarah Queblatin is an inclusive regenerative design strategist passionate in transforming the narrative of Disaster Risk Reduction into “Design for Resilience and Regeneration.” With a background in mental health and psycho-social support, ecopsychology, and expressive arts, she applies a trauma-informed understanding of regenerative resilience in her work with climate and conflict vulnerable communities. Sarah is a founding member of Permaculture for Refugees and has worked with the Global Ecovillage Network for its UN and Advocacy program and served as representative to the UN climate COPs. She founded Green Releaf Initiative in the Philippines, one of the most climate vulnerable nations in the world, working with regenerative solutions for food sovereignty, regenerative livelihood, and ecosystem restoration.

This event one of a series of RSA talks hosted by Hawkwood Centre for Future Thinking. It is free to attend and open to all, Fellows and non-Fellows. We hope to see you there!
