There is no place in the world that will remain untouched by climate change, and yet some places are feeling the effects faster than others. For the FastForward Challenge, organized through MIT's Media Lab, I asked myself what the future might look like for low-lying islands in the pacific whose very existence is threatened by rising sea levels.
To learn about futurism and foresight through practice, I put myself in the shoes of Angie, a Marshallese woman with no desire to leave the land of her ancestors. What could like look like for her and her son if she stayed in The Marshall Islands as sea levels rose? I wrote a design fiction to answer this question.
