The Change - a suburban near-future scenario

Based on 10 years of in-depth research into the most likely outcomes of dwindling resources and climate change, author Carrie Hampel has tracked world events to their most domestic consequences and thrust us into suburban life in the near future.


Carrie hampel has focussed on the transition period into end of the fossil fuel era with regards to fossil fuel resources, economy, climate, environment, industries,  technology and energy (specifically with regards to transport).


Research for the future scenario is currently being sourced for journalism, while the narrative scenario – about the struggles of a suburban family and their neighbourhood –  has taken the form of a novel, currently in a later draft.
