Imagine your smartphone knew everything about the city – but the city didn’t know anything about you. Wouldn’t that be ‘smarter’ than our current surveillance dystopia?
This is a much better idea in terms of how you and your sphere of connectivity become inputs for a smart city. Instead of collecting data on you and other environmental factors, let you be the collector. Our cities would start to model themselves after our lifestyles, instead of requiring us to constantly adapt to meet their needs.
Plan your next mission, with a sail drone. This isn’t just a good way to monitor or collect data on the ocean, it would be a great way for a business to contribute positively to sustainability, to science, and to promote their focus and willingness to contribute this way. In other words, you could also think of it as a branding exercise.
Ocean data platform for science research, sustainable fisheries management, and weather forecasting, powered by a fleet of unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) called saildrones.
Colin Dodgson did not approach Deeper Green as he usually would a project. The photographer went in with an open mind — free from any preconceived ideas of what he wanted to create. Belize was unfamiliar territory, and Dodgson wanted his experience to give shape to the images he made.
The photographer arrived in the Central American country in December 2018 and spent 10 days shadowing rangers affiliated with the World Land Trust — an international conservation charity — specifically the Programme for Belize and the Corozal Sustainable Futures Initiative. On the occasion of the organisations 30th anniversary, Jonny Lu, a close friend and ambassador for the WLT, had invited Dodgson to document the WLT’s protected reserves.
