Change Drivers - Andri Magnason

Discovery Channel

Change Drivers is a mini-series created for Discovery telling the story of people working on the front lines of solving critical problems our world faces today.

From plastic pollution to climate change, the series aims to tell the stories of those who are putting everything on the line to find solutions to some of our society's most dire problems. Matemade was honored to shoot the fifth episode in Iceland joining hands with Studio Birthplace.

Meet Andri Magnason, an Icelandic author. His mission is to spread awareness about the urgency of protecting glaciers and is inspired by his grandparents' testimony to acknowledge that we know what is happening and understand what needs to be done. His books and plays have been published and performed in more than 40 languages. Magnason works with many art forms and genres, sometimes surprising his audience as he switches from poetry to children's literature, and science fiction to nonfiction. His children's books, The Story of the Blue Planet and The Casket of Time, both winners of the Green Earth Book Award, have been used in hundreds of schools worldwide to teach environmental philosophy through play and storytelling.

"I am a writer and I have always been drawn to large issues and big questions when writing poetry, fiction or nonfiction. But when writing On Time and Water I understand that the issue of climate change is larger than language or any previous experience, the scale is mythological. Many glaciers, once the symbol of eternity will be lost in the life of my own daughter. I was happy to have the chance to explore these glaciers with my daughter and discuss what the hope is for future generations. If we act now, we have all the tools and knowledge to avoid the most serious consequences. The whole working life of my daughter's generation is about this and I am hopeful that if we work together we can create the future we need."
