From vision to understanding to action

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.
  3. Visions are collected into a book for publication. This has happened twice!

Read about the science and why we’re using stories. 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. 

As of January 2018, we’ve declared victory. Thank you, everyone!

Here’s the newsletter archive and here are the project costs.
