We’re giving away two tickets to see ‘Radical Nature‘ at the Barbican in London. It’s the first exhibition to bring together key figures across different generations who have created utopian works and inspiring solutions for our ever-changing planet.

Radical Nature draws on ideas that have emerged out of Land Art, environmental activism, experimental architecture and utopianism. The exhibition is designed as one fantastical landscape, with each piece introducing into the gallery space a dramatic portion of nature. Work by pioneering figures such as the architectural collective Ant Farm and visionary architect Richard Buckminster Fuller, artists Joseph Beuys, Agnes Denes, Hans Haacke and Robert Smithson are shown alongside pieces by a younger generation of practitioners including Heather and Ivan Morison, R&Sie(n), Philippe Rahm architects and Simon Starling. Radical Nature also features specially commissioned and restaged historical installations, some of which are located in the outdoor spaces around the Barbican while a satellite project by the architectural collective EXYZT is situated off site.

The exhibition is on until the 18th of October and if you’d like to stand a chance of winning a ticket, simply add a comment telling us about something you do in your daily life that reduces your footprint on our planet.

This competition ends on Friday 9th of October. Two winners will be drawn out of a hat and notified by email.

I’d love to win this ticket for my friend who is moving to London in November. I paid to offset her carbon from that flight there and for her flights home for Christmas back in the States.

I go on holiday locally and don’t fly anywhere if I can get there by train – like the Eurostar to go skiing – whoops! that’s not so green – although I choose the greenest resort – see http://www.skiclub.co.uk/skiclub/resorts/greenresorts/default.asp

It’s more about what I don’t do..

don’t eat meat
don’t put the heating on (yet)
don’t drive a car

if everyone did that we’d cut our emissions by 10% easily

I work for an on-line store and all the packing we use to send out orders has already been used.

I don’t own a car, I only walk or use public transport.

I hate to admit this to clean-freaks, but I am a bit of a soap dodger! I have cut down showering and bathing to a ‘few” times a week. I quick splash in those ‘intimate places is all you need!

Also I grow all the veg in my garden in the summer ,don’t drive – no licence, dry all my washing in the air, never ever in a tumble dryer. I now live in a smaller house, the list goes on, but I have to say it is easier to be green when you are forced to by economics!
