Bushland is burning. The Arctic is shedding ice. And around the world, people are imagining futures which function.
Gritty, graceful, commonsense or whimsical, these twenty tales probe at how we could build a working world using the resources available to us - the natural, the social, the political, and the technological.
Some of these stories invite readers to bask in the warmth of a bright tomorrow, from tree dwellings in India, to restoration projects in Milano, to rewilded suburbs in the East of Australia. Other stories burn with spirit in the face of adversity: smallholders in Botswana adjust to international treaties; gamers tackle reality using virtual tools. And there are shadows, too, in tech suburbs where you can buy eco-cigarettes, or on tree plantations where family members won't toe the line.
And Lately, The Sun features award-winning and emerging authors. Stories by Vrinda Baliga, Dabilo M. Mokobi, Eileen Haley, Illimani Ferreira, Holly Schofield, Sarena Ulibarri, Tais Teng, Derek Des Anges, Eric Del Carlo, Andrew Dana Hudson, Jay Springett, Lauri Kubuitsile, Kristen Schroeder, Adam Berman, Domnica Radulescu, Sofia Mariah, Philip Berry, Andrew Grell, Commando Jungendstil, Tales From The EV Studio, PSC Willis, and Jacob Ashton.
