Artist Jan De Cock, climatologist Frank Raes and interactive developer David Surprenant have started a new collaboration as part of the Scientist in Residence Programme.

Inspired by the use of radio frequences by the resistance during the wars, the team aims to develop an alternative system of communication, taking the form of a device or a smartphone app. This system would offer informative content about nature, specific to the location of the user and originating from verified sources. Thanks to its identifiable design, it would allow its users to recognize each other so as to form a community of climate change resistance.
