“HOW CAN WE COOL OUR NEIGHBORHOODS?”

“DO YOU LIVE IN A HEAT ISLAND?”

 

In this tzedakah box, the artists explored the theme of Environmental Justice, particularly how climate change and environmental negligence disproportionately affect low-income communities. In their work across the city, they see that the conditions of the built environment and access to safe public greenspace have a direct impact on quality of life. Communities with less tree canopy are measurably warmer. This tzedakah box is a tactile materials study that invites the user to reflect on local environmental issues and view the world from different perspectives.

 

Keep Cincinnati Beautiful‘s (KCB’s) education, revitalization, and environmental initiatives build community and foster pride in the places where we live, work, and play. Our grassroots network of neighbors, sponsors, and volunteers put passion to work across all 52 neighborhoods, creating safer, cleaner spaces and a higher quality of life for Cincinnatians.
