As part of Bill Posters artist residency with Metal Liverpool, we invite schools to explore https://eco-bot.net  online and access additional resources through our website to support further exploration of the themes of climate change and online disinformation. Co-created over the past 18 months by artists Bill Posters, Robert ‘3D’ Del Naja of Massive Attack and green energy industrialist and activist Dale Vince, along with a range of lawyers, journalists, technologists and human rights defenders, Eco-Bot.Net is an online intervention into the hidden ecosystems of climate change disinformation and corporate greenwashing that exist online. Key themes of Eco-Bot.Net:
  • the environmental crisis and action on climate change
  • climate change disinformation and fake news
  • art as activism
Eco-Bot.Net educators’ resources are available through Metal’s website and include:
  1. an artist blog from Bill Posters discussing art as activism and the artist’s intentions when creating Eco-Bot.Net. The blog includes a number of embedded links to articles for further reading and research and is written in language aimed at ages 14-18
  2. a clip from climate scientist Dr Tim Lane providing an overview of Climate Change and the significance of COP26
  3. a clip from youth climate activist Ella Gregory of UK Youth For Nature discussing how young people can have a voice in campaigning for positive action on climate change.
Available here: http://www.metalculture.com/metals-residency-artist-bill-posters-discusses-eco-bot-net/ What is disinformation and Greenwashing? Climate disinformation and misinformation refers to deceptive or misleading content that undermines the existence or impacts of climate change. Greenwashing is a form of climate change misinformation - a tactic used by companies that are heavy-emitters that mislead consumers about the green credentials of the company. During Cop26 Eco-Bot.Net is flagging ads and posts on social media that selectively disclose a company’s’ green credentials or portray symbolic green actions, as well as instances of climate misinformation.
