IFLA! is an independent magazine with a fresh perspective on climate change.
The graphics flowing through this issue of IFLA! map the grains inside an Antarctic ice core. For millennia, snow has been continuously crushed, covered by layer upon layer of fresh flakes, trapping bubbles of gas and air deep in the permafrost. Testing the composition of bubbles from hundreds of thousands of years ago allows us to reconstruct relationships between historic global temperatures and the concentration of gases in the atmosphere. This has revealed the catastrophic scale of greenhouse gas emissions wrought by industrialisation over the past two centuries, and the alarming heating that inevitably follows.
Last year we saw the number of net zero pledges promised by global governments and businesses double. As yet, there is no assurance these pledges will do enough to decarbonise our economies, while the intertwined problems of social inequity, biodiversity collapse, pollution and resource depletion remain huge challenges.
So, in issue 7, we explore what regeneration might mean: the messy, necessary, complex climate actions that truly protect our planet.
We consider people and movements that put climate action under a broad lens: climate activists moving into digital spaces, artists challenging conventional narratives about oil politics, and growing efforts to put a price on nature. We also reflect on regenerative approaches in a wide array of different spaces: slow fashion in the South Asian diaspora, handling death sustainably, restorative agriculture, and regenerative social housing.⠀
