Rose Sjölander launch Futureworldproject.org



The Future World Project
is a self funded independent project developed by Will Rose and Kajsa Sjölander. As the Future World Project they visited Russia, China, Indonesia and India in 2009 and 2010 collecting stories to develop a long term project on climate change and resources. Included in this first phase body of work are impacts, causes, solutions and resource management told from a human perspective. The project aims to show the impacts of climate change happening now, with the objective to communicate clearly what these changes are, and the consequences of a carbon dependent society on the world.

The Future World Project used a GPS tracker to collect geo-location data for all media assets to create this website. The team hope people will use this project as a resource for revisiting these issues and continuing to work monitoring changes and bringing the stories to a larger audience. Accurate information collection and maintenance allows stories to develop over years which is essential for this particular subject matter. GPS map data also creates a platform for future reference work. The coordinates are 90 percent accurate to within 10 metres of where the picture was taken.

With support from ViaVia solutions the Future World Project team have developed an image tagging system to try and show how most of these issues are connected. Once inside the site, every image displays its related tag stories underneath, meaning you can browse freely – moving from a story in Russia to a story in Indonesia in a few clicks.
