Today we can live longer, travel further and communicate faster than ever before. But the climate is the hottest it’s been for a thousand years, the world’s richest one percent owns half of all global wealth and depression will soon be the biggest health burden in the world. The world is a complicated place. COLORS’ Survival Guides show you how to get around it. From transportation to sanitation, from happiness to climate change, global markets, news-making, contemporary art and protest, the Survival Guides are a family of COLORS issues that, since Spring 2011, mix photography, illustration, design and writing to give our readers facts, stories and survival tips for the big issues of our time.
