Pyramid of Technology at WDCD 2017

Every human being has to cope with technological change, yet few of us are aware of how new technologies are introduced, accepted and discarded in our society. The Pyramid of Technology visualizes how technology becomes nature in seven steps and what we can learn from that. It helps us to dream, build and live in our next nature – the nature caused by humans. Join us tomorrow for the launch of the project at What Design Can Do in Amsterdam, to explore our life through the lens of the Pyramid of Technology.

Letter to Humanity in 25 Languages, Plus One!

Last Saturday we globally celebrated Earth Day and shared our Letter to Humanity with the world. Available in over twenty-five languages, we called on our readers to share, copy, translate and further distribute the letter. However, “amongst all languages, one version was sadly missing” wrote us Gijs Ockeloen, who provided a translation in Morse Code. “Please make this important message accessible to the shrinking but not yet extinct morse-community!” he asked. Ockeloen worked as a telegraphist for the Royal Netherlands Army in 1979, where he learned to communicate with Morse Code. We thank Gijs for his contribution and gladly share his Letter to Humanity version. Is your language missing? Send your translation, we will add it with your name on lettertohumanity.org.
