For the next year, the LRB is collaborating with the World Weather Network, a constellation of weather stations set up by 28 arts organisations in oceans, deserts, mountains, farmland, rainforests, lighthouses and cities around the world. Artists and writers will share observations, stories, reflections and images responding to their local weather and the effects of the climate emergency. A new report from an LRB contributor about one of the WWN locations will be published every other Friday on the LRB blog, alongside artwork generated by the network.
