Letters from 2050 is a collection of narratives that aims to imagine post-fossil future.
Through fictional letters by the future inhabitants of our globe, stories touch upon topics such as water scarcity, immigration, poverty and automation in relation to the climate change.

Letters from 2050 was part of the Post-Fossil City Contest, an initiative of the Urban Futures Studio / Utrecht University. It is currently a part of the Post-Fossil City Exhibition curated by Non-Fiction.
