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:
- 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.
- Authors’ visions are published as blog posts for discussion and debate.
- In the publication phase (late 2017), the editor will collect and edit the best posts into chapters for a book, Life Plus 2 Meters.
You can also listen to this three minute conversation in which I discuss the motivation for the project and how I hope to get “a thousand visions” of what life plus 2m would be like.
