The Power of Postcards

The Power of Postcards

I recently came across this wonderful project set up by Outriders, a globally-focused news outlet that I believe is based in Poland. Every two weeks, subscribers to Post Postcards are sent a digital postcard from an inspiring community, town or city that is making an effort to fight climate change. From Groningen, Netherlands, to Kaduna State, Nigeria, and Roraima state, Brazil, the postcards of the projects are usually illustrated with a watercolour painting; a compelling way of keeping the topic in mind. (Relatedly, Postcards from Timbuktu is a brilliant project that allows you to order a postcard from the Malian desert city, at the same time supporting former tour guides who have been made unemployed due to ongoing conflict in the region).
