What about the future?

World to become

The Anthropocene

This podcast is part of my ambition to communicate the interesting, important and immense need to transform the society to become less unsustainable, more resilient and understand what being part of the Anthropocene means.

About the Podcast

Beyond One Degree. It is a transition, site, blog and podcast about our world in change and the search for adaptation, mitigation, resilience and sustainability. We cast with scenarios, science and storytelling.

Earth is complex and constantly changing. It resembles itself but never repeats, especially not when moving into uncharted territory. We are one degree above pre-industrial average global temperature. Facing climate change the size of ice-ages, but in other directions. And there are more system changing. Humans are the driving force.

What to do and how to stay sane grasping global and local changes, transitions, sustainability, cooperation, resilience and complexity? Conversations with scientists, policy makers, entrepreneurs, activists, artists and philosophers with knowledge, insights and commitment.

We have entered the Anthropocene. But no single intellect, nor humanity collectively, are in control. We are all pushing and bound to follow along. We share stories that engage and help you remember the future. Adapt and take action to the world and life we live. Beyond One Degree.

English, and some Swedish

We produce episodes in both English and Swedish, so when you subscribe to the podcast you will get both. 

Most people in Scandinavia are pretty fluent in both English and Swedish, so for them this isn’t a problem. But if you don’t understand Swedish, just be patient and skip that episode, the next one might be in english.

My intention was to publish new episodes on a weekly basis, but as reality turned out it, that wasn’t the case. The publishing is a bit more stochastic.

PS. I have run a blog since 2008 where you will find more information (however only in Swedish) about climate, weather, adaptation, media etc. Check out martinhedberg.se. DS.
