We travelled across an area of 5,000 m2: trekking through diverse climate zones and encountering people whose daily lives are profoundly affected by the surrounding climate.
Switzerland: alpine climate of Isenthal, in the canton of Uri. Wandered through the lush green meadows, past the cows, headed up the mountain along jagged rock formations to the cross (gipfelkreuz) on the summit.
Seneghe in Sardinia: provides unique insights into climate events and weather patterns.
Kanal in Nigeria: Drought, expansiveness, aridity, heat, sand and wind – all are part of daily life in the Sahel zone. We walked on desert sands and discovered that the northern Sahara was once a green region that developed into a desert over the course of time.
Ikenge in Cameroon: has an abundance of water, but also a hot and humid climate, making it a paradise for animals and plants. With their almost limitless diversity, rainforests are the treasure troves of our planet.
Queen Maud Land, Antarctica: Cold, ice, snow and a frigid wind to top it off. Temperatures well below zero, and endless ice of white landscape and ice shelves – vertical cliffs with a face of ice and snow – and plateaus.
Satitoa in Samoa: below the surface of the water is a unique underwater world, captured in a series of large aquaria that parade the diverse lives of fish and coral on a South Pacific fringing reef.
Gambell in Alaska: a small town on the remote island of St Lawrence where the indigenous inhabitants of the island, the Yupik, have lived off seal hunting and whaling for thousands of years.
Hallig Langeness in Germany: the Halligen islands are surrounded by the turbulent North Sea, the flooding tides and the rising sea levels. Only in the middle of this Hallig island do your feet remain dry.
