As climate change touches every aspect of our lives, how will it change us? How will we adapt? Living Climate Change is a devoted space for the most defining design challenge of our time. It’s also a place to support fresh thinking and share provocative ideas about the future.

Hosted by IDEO, a global design and innovation company, Living Climate Change aims to support conversations beyond policy and national sacrifice in order to point toward new possibilities. Moving the debate away from what we have to give up toward what we can create, this site is born from the conviction that design has a role to play in addressing the global issue of climate change. It aspires to support the conversation by asking good questions and exploring creative solutions in an optimistic and real-world way.

Opening up the conversation to people of all ages, IDEO have partnered with DESIGN 21 on the Living Climate Change Video Challenge. We invite you to imagine what life will be like in 20 or 30 years, as we move along a path toward reduced carbon emissions. Will the targets be reached? Which behaviors will need to change? Which will we choose to preserve? The Living Climate Change Video Challenge is an open invitation to designers and non-designers alike to think creatively about an issue that impacts us all.
