How did you make this work:
Climate change is hard to understand as it cannot be immediately seen. It’s at the core of illustration, however, to make things visible – and thus easier to understand. Understanding, in turn, is the prerequisite of taking action against climate change. With this series, I hence wanted to contribute to action against climate change by making its consequences visible and showcasing alternatives.
