ReFuturing Studies Seminar on Climate Change – designing for Societal Transformation

The second theme questions 'Climate Change as we act upon it', by discussing what it implies to change the change, why we haven't been able to bend the emissions curve and how design can modify its toolset to be equipped for exploring how we enter a more long-term sustainable trajectory.
