This is not an atlas: a global collection of counter-cartographies

"In this interplay between facts and perception, the cartographer is both witness and actor. [...] In order to create, or, more accurately: to invent, "his worlds", he finally arrives at a subtle mixture of t...

From degrowth to de-globalisation

By: Samuel Decker

Enough is as good as a feast: here’s how we can imagine a brighter food future

By: Christoph Rupprecht

Introduction: The World Economic Forum’s 2017 report on the future of food examines what the world’s food systems might look like in 2030.
