It’s official: global temperatures are rising and we are already witnessing the chaos that this is wreaking on our weather systems, natural environments, sea levels, water availability, and disease transmission, to name just a few effects.

On 13 Jul 2010, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warned of the risks of inaction regarding climate change, ‘The more we delay, the more we will pay – in lost opportunities, say resources and lives.’

Sadly, not all nations see eye to eye on the issues. COP15, Copenhagen 2009, failed to achieve global consensus on climate change issues and a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.

On the upside, global warming, climate change and risks to our biodiversity rank very high on the concerns of young people. Seven TiltShift teams will be concentrating their collective energies on this critical area – the largest number among the different thematic areas – with a range of projects that aim to curb carbon dioxide emissions, trapping carbon dioxide and increase water availability.
