Renaturierung – The human vs nature re-connection
Since the pandemic in 2020, nature-based solutions were researched to both combat rising temperatures and increasing water woes but also to include humans centrally in the entire course of action. Now, in 2051, the exclusion and injustice that climate change inflicted is effectively encountered. Javaid and Habeeb speak from a future, where climate action happened through a change in lifestyle and basic measures like planting and fostering urban trees.
Sana Javaid and Riyan Habeeb present their work on day 2 of T2051MCC. On this day it is assumed that global heating has remained below 1.5°C.
