Konnect brings together art students and environmental scientists to discuss some of the major environmental challenges that the world faces. Konnect is a Nordic project – supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers Sustainability initiative and the Nordic Culture Point.

The aim of Konnect is to bring together scientists and artists, because they express themselves differently. Scientists have a hard time making their voice heard. They are subjected to very strict codes of communication, must express themselves in a set, dry and objective way, which is not likely to catch the attention of the general public, media or politicians. Artists on the other hand are experts in changing mind sets, in making people see the world in a different light. Konnect aims to create a dialogue between artists and scientists to inspire the creation of art works that will arouse public attention to pressing environmental problems.
