[email protected] calls applications for Climate Fiction Competition 2021. The world is on fire. Under business as usual, scientists warn that by 2050 over half of the world could face water scarcity, unsafe levels of air pollution, and increasingly unpredictable weather events. The world is at a crossroads. If we act now, we have a unique opportunity to remake the world otherwise.

What future do we hope for? What future do we fear? If you could write any world into being, what world would that be?

The climate crisis is global, but it was not made and will not be felt equally. Africa is the continent that has contributed the least to carbon emissions. Yet it stands to be most devastatingly affected by the effects of climate change, with limited resources to cope. Today, African perspectives on just transitions to a low-carbon world have never been more important.
