An open and growing archive of lived wisdom of people

Climate Recipes is an itinerant research project envisioned as a growing archive of intergenerational wisdom relayed from conversations with people committed to the issues of land and the environment.

Climate Recipes is curated by Srinivas Aditya Mopidevi & Srinivas Mangipudi.


What are Climate Recipes?
They are concise, intimate, everyday instructions from architects, journalists, scientists, activists, artists, and farmers that suggest different ways of reorienting our vision for a flourishing planet. They are entry points for an adaptable life suggesting diverse ways of farming, foresting, sharing, listening, living and loving.

How do we gather them and present them?
We meet with different people dedicated in their own areas of interest and have conversations about their work. These conversations are synthesized into short recipes and presented through text, illustrative drawings, exhibitions, and public programs.

What topics and areas have we covered so far?
We have interacted with twenty-five experts in Goa whose work encompasses foraging, sustainable architecture, immunology, urban planning, and food histories among others. Our ongoing Andhra Pradesh & Telangana edition brings together experts on natural farming - food systems, water conservation, and biodiversity restoration.

Which editions are upcoming?
We are currently in the process of research for the Bengaluru edition that focuses on neighborhood actions and sustainable cities. Our research in Bhitarkanika National Park is unpacking ways to address the area’s ecological, and economic realities. In addition, we are working on an international artist’s edition of Climate Recipes where artists present speculative proposals about the future of our collective ecosystem.

Goa Edition

Twenty-five experts from Goa in various fields – environmentalists, foragers, academics, urban planners, eco-architects, chefs, farmers, poets and others offer life recipes from their lived experiences of the environment. They collectively call to realign with the ‘flow of our existing planetary system and find sites of refuge’ in the wake of climate adversity.

Namma Ward, Namma Dhwani
In Bengaluru, Climate Recipes takes on the approach of listening to neighbourhoods as a way of understanding the city’s ecosystem at a micro level. The project aims to expand and spatialize the scope of what would living sustainably mean to the rapidly transforming urban ecosystem like Bengaluru.

Bhitarkanika Edition(ongoing)


The Bhitarkanika ecosystem today is caught between the wellbeing of the National park’s wildlife and the people who live on its land. There are ecological and economic challenges the national park area faces today that need to be surfaced and addressed. This edition focuses on the potential activation of the local economy and a balanced relationship between humans and wildlife. We will work with the Odisha Government and other organizations in the state in envisioning it.
