Sketched up this drawing yesterday… Researching it, I wonder why it is so often the young that have to change the ways of the adults, and the kids that take action to stop their parents from ruining our planet
We meet tough times wearing different glasses
The insect mobile citizen science project
The idea that is starting to spread is to put nets on cars that volunteers drive around on a special route on certain times. Collecting samples of the insects there and counting and documenting what they have found
Planting trees together
No doubt I'm skeptical about how phones and technology are changing our lives both indoors and on the trails. But once in a while I see it can also do good
Ringing birds memory lane
The expert were explaining how the important work of ringing birds and collecting data about bird migration and behavior was coordinated all over the world and my thoughts went back to Ertholmene... where I used to stay together with the bird-people
Pokemon go for biodiversity
Watching kids walk everywhere and point their phones around caching Pokemon Go virtual creatures I was just one of many wondering... couldn't this be used in ways to document biodiversity and wildlife... I sketched up my idea and explained it on a Citizen Science conference and a guy said: "it exist... several ones I think" The most well-known one is called "Seek"
Those closest to the problems can be the best to help solve them

Paradox of cars and climate change
Logbook 15 March - The worse and more extreme the weather becomes... The more people wants to stay in their cars
Climate Change vs business as usual
The approaching sea level rise, with walls of water heading for our cities is so scary that most of us simply ignore it
Driving beside kids that rather walk
3. March 2019 As parents we often drive our kids to what-ever and where-ever they need to go - But walking together with them is a better alternative
Ivory towers and islands
The classic silo mentality is something many of us try to battle, but these defense towers like structures are more incorporated into our mindsets than we like to imagine and before we know it, we're back in the silo
Coastal innovation light bulbs
Creating networks and open innovation along the coastline is key to find ways to support the thrive of local communities and biodiversity, and help us all face local and global challenges like sea level rise and pollution
Coastal attraction below the water
Understandings of the coastline do not need to stop at the surface of the water - Seeing things under the water can create whole new levels of experiences and knowledge
