Climate change reduced by remote work

Remote work was all news during the recent pandemic outbreak. What was less visible is that it has a profound impact on climate change and the future of our planet. This motivation was behind my recent decision to go fully remote. And since I live close to the forest I could not resist trying the forest office during summer break. Check out the video below.

53% of carbon emissions come from global transportation. One employee going to work emits 3.2 tons per year. What if people could meet and work remotely more effectively?

I’m showing on the video the future of remote work with spatial design and meeting tool Virtualist developed by our studio. It allows you to build your scene in the virtual world and introduce your project members to meet and solve business challenges.

Climate change is often a target of aggressive denial campaign with some prominent politicians on the frontline. What is less discussed is that businesses should have a powerful alternative to decide for a remote work model and current tools lack some basic functionalities reflecting human psychology and emotions of being together. I have written a more in-depth study of the remote meetings here.

It all comes down to a feeling of being together in the end and being able to sort business goals. Most of the tools are based on the visual grid of faces staring at you. This makes people uneasy. Moreover the collaboration in real-time with these tools doesn’t play well with solving spatial issues such as discussing designs.

The video was shot in the Bukowy (Beech) Forest in the West Pomerania Region of Poland. It also features another cool company Ampio Smart Home.

Thanks to West Pomerania ICT Cluster and West Pomerania Region for the video. Thanks to Simon’s Dad for building the incredible wooden hut in our forest.
