Without drastic changes in the way we use the resources of our planet, we will need not one but two planets Earth by 2030. Last March, Transforma and Teatro Maria Matos launched an open call for public art projects, devoted to issues of ecology, sustainable development, biodiversity and global warming. Five artistic projects by Portuguese and foreign artists were selected to be part of Earth². The participants are invited to partake in the conference Two Degrees the Transforma Think Thank and an artist-inresidence program at Transforma, with tutorial scientific feedback and documentation of the process. The final results will be presented in Torres Vedras and Lisbon.
