From vision to understanding to action

We are now publishing draft “visions” (chapters) for Life Plus 2 Meters, Volume 2. Please read and comment to improve them before we go to press in December.

Life Plus 2 Meters (volume 1) is available in paperback or free PDF or Kindle! Please read, review, share!

Back to the project description…

The Life Plus 2 Meters project will help people think about and prepare for adapting to climate change.

This non-commercial, crowdsourced project has three steps:

  1. Authors offer their vision of a climate-changed world where sea levels have risen by 2 meters, “extreme” weather is routine, and humans must adapt to complex changes in environmental, social, political and economic conditions. These visions may bring optimistic, pessimistic, social, technical, macro, and/or micro perspectives to the discussion. There is no right way to engage this complex topic.
  2. Authors’ visions are published as blog posts for discussion and debate. We are currently publishing work as submitted, so send it in!
  3. Visions are collected into a book for publication. This has happened once and will happen again!

Read about the science, why we’re using stories, and how to write and submit.

You can also listen to this three-minute conversation or watch this video from the Kickstarter to learn more about the motivations and goals of the project.

By the way, I’m David Zetland and I’m available via email or you can subscribe to our newsletter
