The UK’s Missing Salmon Alliance is leading a global coalition to bring the art installation Salmon School to the heart of the COP26 Summit in Glasgow.
Salmon School is a community engagement project by the internationally renowned artist Joseph Rossano. Salmon School, featuring in the Blue Zone, takes to the global stage at COP26 to communicate the message that, with the twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss, iconic wild salmon are on a path to extinction.
Salmon School brings together a community of artists, scientists, educators and environmental groups from all over the world, all contributing to the project’s artistic vision – salmon represent the global health of our rivers, oceans and ultimately our relationship with the natural world that sustains all human activity.
There has been a huge amount of support. The organisations involved include Salmon Nation, Atlantic Salmon Federation, Wild Salmon Center, the Smithsonian Institution and Artist, Joseph Rossano.
