Launching The Rough Planet Guide to Notterdam, 2045 edition: tour tomorrow, today!
“Welcome to Notterdam, an urban jewel in the crown of a decarbonised Europe! The Rough Planet is your essential insider’s guide to the sights and experiences on offer in this vibrant city, so radically transformed from its former dependence on fossil fuels and the petrochemicals industry. Whether you want to know where’s best for a good bite to eat, how to spend some leisure time, or when it’s best to travel, The Rough Planet Guide has got you covered…”
The Rough Guide to Notterdam is a tourist guide for an imagined coastal city in a possible future Europe, circa 2045. A novel (and fun!) approach to communicating research in the broad field of sustainability and decarbonisation, the Guide makes use of techniques from science fiction and critical design to explore the dynamic forces of sociotechnical reconfiguration in the context of climate change. At this official launch event, you can read the Guide, have a (socially-distanced!) discussion, and hear REINVENT researchers Paul G Raven, Johannes Stripple and Lars J Nilsson discuss how and why the Guide was made.
