The ‘On Climate Crisis’ Masterclass Series Volume III showcases the ten virtual masterclasses on the topic of climate change, now carefully edited and presented in written form. This publication brings together diverse experts from various professional and geographical backgrounds, including fields such as architecture, design, policy-making, oceanography and landscape architecture. These masterclasses are united by the common purpose of offering solutions for the most pressing issue of our time: the climate crisis.

The experts included in this third volume include Jonathan Foley, Sheila Foster, Mitchell Joachim, Lydia Kallipoliti, Rachel Kyte, Amory Lovins, Peter B. de Menocal, Henk Ovink, Kotchakorn Voraakhom and Ken Yeang. The masterclasses are divided into five chapters—Design Solutions, Policy and Systems Change, Water Challenges and Opportunities, Carbon Reduction and Removal, and Transforming Waste—each offering unique visions and solutions for the climate crisis. From the role of ecological design in architecture to the opportunities offered by the ocean for carbon reduction in the atmosphere, the diversity of topics allows readers a broad understanding of the many strategies that can be implemented to tackle climate change.

This is the third volume in the Norman Foster Foundation’s Masterclass Series, an initiative from the Education + Research Unit, whose mission is to transfer advanced knowledge in a wide range of design fields.
