Uncomfortable Knowledge
Progressive disclosure
Quantitative Story-Telling

MAGIC launched its video series "Uncomfortable Knowledge" on YouTube with six videos questioning master narratives in sustainability science:

  • Complexity in Sustainability
  • Is a circular bioeconomy possible?
  • Can intermittent renewable energy power modern society?
  • How should we measure efficiency?
  • Are electric vehicles the future of transport?
  • Are biofuels a solution to climate change?

The videos are part of MAGIC's strategy of progressive disclosure in Quantitative Story-telling. These videos, in combination with other props, seek to stimulate a reflection on the robustness of narratives currently used to frame sustainability issues. The videos are also available on our website:
