These imagined images from UK artists Robert Graves and Dider Madoc-Jones picture what the city of London will look like in a world devastated by climate change. 'Postcards from the Future' is a project that shows the effects of rising sea levels and global warming could have. This includes climate refugee-inhabited slums and canals for boat navigation.
One issue when it comes to environmental activism and climate change in particular is many places in the Western world (like London but more importantly North America) do not see the effects of climate change first hand so they are unfeeling towards the plight of island nations like Tuvulu, for example. Robert Graves and Didier Madoc-Jones conceived of the series to increase understanding.
