In the years to come we need to face many challenges, how many of them can you spot in this drawing? ( Drawing id: di01055 )
On an island somewhere
Drawn story experiment about two podcasters making a location-based audio story
Telling audio-stories using phone’s location
We can tell place-based stories in new ways, where people walk, using the GPS position of the phone, to follow both a story and a path at the same time
Facing the future better
Challenges comes in many forms, but a few things make it easier to meet them (Illustration: di1869)
Evolution of artificial intelligence
Cartoon about how our relation to digital reality has changed ((illustration di1884)
Will we merge with our phones?
The perspectives of the latest developments in both AI and in ways to implant new technology into our heads might be mind-blowing in more ways than we humans can comprehend... (illustration: di01890 )

A combination of early heatwave and lack of rain has hit Spain and also Portugal in April 2023 harder than ever. (Illustration dj00218)

Sea level rise – Dark horse of climate change
Of all the climate dynamics and effects of global warming sea level rise is the one we understand the least (illustration: di01570)
Different views on Sea level rise
Sea level rise is a new and growing challenge with several perspectives on it . (illustration ref. di1667 )
Four strategies to face sea level rise
Coastal cities and places are finding new solutions against the rising seas using: protection, adaptation, withdrawal or avoidance (Illustration ref: di01660)
Choosing types of coastal protection
Communities can choose from many ways to create coastal defenses to prepare for future sea level rise (drawing: di01664 )
Cooperation on coastal protection
I can be a challenge for neighboring municipalities to coordinate and think of solutions together ( illustration ref: di01656 )
We are all experts in some way
We need to talk together - experts can talk very convincing, but sometimes it is worth remembering that the more expert, the more narrow perspective ( illustration ref. di01663)
Climate protection can be more
di01662 - Many climate measures will only come into use in extreme storm and weather situations, and to make them better investments and more useful, planners and architects have started to put experiences and other functions into them
User skepticism about change
Di01666 - New projects can run into what is called NIMBY: "Not in my backyard"
Climate solutions in the sea close to land
Di01665 - The sea close to land is far more important both for biodiversity and protection against rising seas and storm surges than previously thought
Nature based sea protection
Di01657 - More and more solutions for securing the coasts against rising seas and storm surges use both nature as inspiration and buffer
Un-noticed vs sudden sea rise
Di01659 Graph of the sudden and unexpected surge, which we can recover from, and then the slow, predictable, but unstoppable rising sea, which we have to move from sooner or later
Storm surge and sea level rise
Di01658 Sea level rise is the slow turtle that steadily, but quietly crawls up a little higher on the beach every year. Storm surge is the increasingly large bird, flapping its waves, flying fast and destructively inland, soon to be gone again, so reconstruction can begin. With the turtle, no rebuilding is possible.
Our buildings shape us first
"We shape our buildings, and afterwards they shape us" said Winston Churchill... but isn't it more the other way around? (Illustration: Di01630)
Surrender to love
Way back I did this drawing and put it up for download, and some time later I received a great snapshot of it used on a wall far, far away.
Will war be moving to the digital clouds?
New cloud based technology is becoming part in conflicts - but how does it look? ( illustration Di00081 )
Global biodiversity conference reach agreement
Global biodiversity meeting in December 2022 agrees to restore 30% of the degraded terrestrial, inland water, coastal and marine ecosystems on Earth
Not much happens at the flower market
"How is it going? I asked. Not much happening" he said looking around, shrugging his shoulders...
