Desertification, piles of trash, water and food scarcity. According to Szeged Vision, this is what Szeged, Hungary’s third-largest city, might look like 30 years from now if we do not take action to fight climate change.

Climate change is undoubtedly one of the defining issues of our time. From shifting weather patterns and global temperature rise to rising sea levels, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale. Although we have enough money and knowledge to avert potential disasters, countless individual, social, economic and political factors are preventing us from making significant progress.

A group of Hungarian professors and scientists created Szeged Vision project to help people understand the complex problems of climate change and to initiate a discussion about the topic, Szeretlek Magyarország reported. Last week, they posted some shocking “concept designs” to draw attention to the consequences of climate change.

The river Tisza is almost completely dried out, people are suffering from the intense heat waves, the trash is piled up on the streets, and petroleum-based fuel, clean water and food have become luxury items.

Valahogy így nézhet majd ki Szeged 2050-ben, ha továbbra is félvállról vesszük a klímaváltozás elleni küzdelmet. 😐Ha…

“Szeged might look like this in 2050 if we do not take urgent action to combat climate change,” says the caption of the 360 photos.

The interactive website also offers a glimpse into a drastically different cityscape. If people decide to use their knowledge and the technology to reduce the human influence on the climate system, the Aradi Vértanúk tere (Arad Martyrs Square) in Szeged can become an important transport hub with electric busses, smart bus stops, automated tram-trains and smart city sensors.

Perspektívát váltunk: mostantól az érem másik oldalára, a lehetőségeinkre fogunk koncentrálni. 😊Most elképzeljük, hogy…

  1. The climate emergency is real and yet countries in Europe such as Poland and Hungary – particularly selfish Poland – are dragging their heels in decommissioning coal powered Power Stations. Green energy initiatives have been proven to provide replacement jobs for those that have been employed in the ‘old’ polluting energy sources. Even China is slowly moving away from coal (too slowly, but every bit counts).

  2. I agree with the idea that we should do what we can to protect the planet but the idea that we are all going to live in deserts does not add up.
    Every single prediction of disaster made by the politicians ( Al Gore “an inconvenient truth” for example simply has not happened! )
    Beware of Watermelon politicians, they are green on the outside but red inside!

  3. More fear porn by the environmental terrorist who want us all walking everywhere, living in unheated homes and eating no meat. You can keep your ideas and live them if you like but trying to force them on everyone is wrong.

  4. In the kingdom of Orbananas there is no place for concerns related to people’s well-being, that means zero interest in health care, secular education, green policies aiming at containing the effects of global warming etc.
    Priorities are: financial welfare of the autocrats, populistic initiatives such as useless sport and history-fabrication venues built with taxpayers’money, anti-Soros and xenophobic, antisemitic, antimuslim, anti-EU, anti-almostALL propaganda ( aka cheap brainwashing for simple masses and rural palinka consumers ) and anything else that fits in the agenda of the illiberal decision makers.
    I feel sorry for educated Hungarians who live through these years of darkness with a sense of shame and humiliation.
    No wonder why young, fresh, qualified people are emigrating to European countries where values still exist.
