Pieter Pauw, is a sustainability and climate change expert, and holds an MSc from VU University Amsterdam and a Ph.D. in private climate change adaptation and finance. Specialising in climate finance and policy, he works at the FS-UNEP Centre, contributing to international climate policy and finance research.

Myrthe Is a performative maker/researcher, exploring social structures and systems. She uses theatrics through various projects and collaborations. Her work takes on various forms, from installations and performances to audio walks and workshops.

They will be exploring ways of playing with language, both content and form, used around climate change as well as using the human body as the main material to experiment with political and public debate serving as their starting point.

Arnoud is a Senior Scientist at KNMI specialising in air quality and climate change research. Arnoud integrates ground-based measurements with space-borne earth observation, utilising optical sensing techniques like LIDAR.

Riad Salameh is a Lebanese researcher and art practitioner with a background in graphic design. His work focuses on the ownership of bodies in cyberspaces and explores the interlink between economies and biopower. 

This duo aims to better understand and respond to the changing conditions we experience.

Evy is a PhD Candidate at NIOZ Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, she graduated from Wageningen University & Research in 2021. Her research focuses on the impact of sea-level rise on shorebirds in the Wadden Sea. Through fieldwork and innovative techniques, such as analysing bird faeces, Evy aims to understand how sea-level changes affect bird behaviour and diets, contributing valuable insights to the adaptability of the Wadden Sea ecosystem.

Andrea, a Mexican designer and researcher, blends material exploration, critical design, and storytelling. Using materiality as a communication tool, she explores critical narratives and local stories through graphic design, research, and product development.

With a shared commitment to hands-on practices, their collaboration will incorporate a blend of bird behaviour and material storytelling, revealing exciting insights.

Nikki focuses on social acceptability, citizen engagement & participation, and justice in the context of the energy transition. Currently working as a PhD researcher at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), she conducts research and teaches the social aspects of sustainability in general and in specific the energy transition. Themes that are in particular central in her research are social acceptability of the energy transition, inclusive engagement and justice in transforming energy systems. 

Lisa has a unique approach to design. She considers design as a tool for debate in the public domain. In collaboration with scientists, ethicists and researchers she crafts future narratives through designed prototypes, creating invitations to reflect on possible futures.

Together, their collaboration sparks at the intersection of policy, ethics, lifestyle, and acceptability.

Frederike is working on the flow of resources through our societies, seeing it as a metabolism and researching how it changes across different scenarios. 

Willie wants to transform data into visible, sensitive and discusable matters of concern through tangible, relatable and atmospheric experiences.

Their common interests are in materials and using elements of play to communicate how we can see materials as a physical substance but also abstractly as part of a larger network.

Tim is PhD candidate at the University of Utrecht and studies the future of the Antarctic ice sheet. He uses models to represent the present day state of the ice sheet and then ‘run them into the future’ on timescales up to 1000 years from now.

Colette works on social design research, installation art and sound art. Colette finds an intuitive relation to sound and translating complex scientific knowledge into design, a focus in all of her projects. She envisions experimenting and using sound as both a core data and sensory experience.

Frank, a Senior Scientist at KNMI, holds an MSc in Physics from Eindhoven University of Technology and a Ph.D. in novel methodology for modelling large-scale atmospheric dynamics. 

Karl, a designer and tool-builder, works in the digital realm, focusing on experimental interfaces and infrastructures. Collaborating with artists and organisations, he emphasises critical attention to processes and tools. He's particularly interested in open-source software, with a focus on accessibility and sustainability. 

Together they will be providing a dynamic collaboration that combines critical perspectives with future-focused scientific exploration!

Merel is a communicative designer with a commercial background. Her work is able to spark movement at a societal level with catchy images and playfulness. She has great experience in the creative industry as an art-director, and a master's degree in Environmental Science & Technology.

Roderik is a Professor of Sea Level and Coastal Impacts at Utrecht University, holding expertise in sea level change, climate dynamics, and the cryosphere. With an MSc in Physical Geography and a Ph.D. in Ice and Climate, he leads a team of researchers focusing on topics such as paleo climate modelling and ice dynamics in Greenland and Antarctica.

Together, they're reimagining the game of data and dependencies, aiming to provoke societal action with a bit of playfulness.

Hailey, is a PhD Candidate at NIOZ Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research and Utrecht University. Specialising in Benthic Invertebrates, Marine Ecology, and Sea Level Rise, she is currently studying the impact of sea-level rise on the intertidal ecosystems of the Dutch Wadden Sea. Using long-term datasets and modelling, Hailley aims to forecast the effects of rising sea levels on the Wadden Sea ecosystem.

Matilde is an Interdisciplinary designer. She works with installations, film making and performance. Her practice revolves around the relationship between societal and dwelling factors in a context of fast socio economical and environmental changes. 

Their goal is to create a spatial bond between sea and land that transforms the way we perceive and interact with our coastal environments.
