ISSUE 5 - OZONE

Nothing should have flourished here, in this desert, in this country, under this reactionary government – and yet it did, and does. Alexander Harris, IFLA! issue 5

As green commentators speculate about the future of environmentalism in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, it is more important than ever that green thinking should grow and evolve.

In issue 5, we explore new approaches to ideas about climate change. Some articles propose big green changes which might fit into a ‘post-corona’ portfolio of green proposals. Some reflect on the outcomes of existing green approaches, and others interrogate the purpose and ethics of new technologies that aim to improve the environment.

ISSUE 4 - STORM

And then there are the crackling sounds that the ice emits while melting; air – sealed in pockets inside the ice for thousands of years – is released... it speaks its own language Olafur Eliasson, IFLA! issue 4

With ideas about how to avoid the crisis proliferating, in issue 4 we look at what change means in environmentalism.

 

We talk to people around the world about how the landscapes they know have evolved in the last decades, learn about different ways to discuss green processes, and consider suggestions of how to revolutionise our systems. 

ISSUE 3 - PROTEST

You don’t need to worry about the end of the world he reassured me.

This sits uneasy with me &

I don’t know if it’s true. Phoebe Thomson, IFLA! issue 3

In issue 3 of IFLA!, our writers and illustrators called for profound change. Now we begin to ask what that change, in all its complexity, might look like.

To protect our environment, we must learn from all corners, disciplines and backgrounds. Luckily, from theatre to pollution, and architecture to waste, at IFLA! we’ve found no shortage of ideas.

ISSUE 2 - FIRE

2019 must be the year that we muster all our collective courage and strength to put the restoration and protection of the natural world at the heart of our economy. Caroline Lucas MP, IFLA! issue 2

Following a tumultuous 2018 for climate action, at IFLA! we've been thinking about profound change.

 

In issue 2 we consider how best to prioritise Indigenous voices, redesign design questions and take a look at a long history of attempts to change the weather. We look at peat bogs and algae; cosmetics and tungsten bulbs, and untangle a few more strands of humanity's greatest challenge.

ISSUE 1 - TEMPERATURE

Ice storm rolls from Texas to Tennessee - I'm in Los Angeles and it's freezing. Global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax! Trump, 2013 

The graphics in this magazine are taken from global surface temperature maps dating back to 1884.

Between then and now, the average global temperature has increased by nearly a whole degree.

 

Two-thirds of this occurred in the last 43 years.
