Although the Netherlands doesn’t have teams in Malaysia, there is still a lot going on there. On the internet one can find a lot of sources from where information can be gained. In the previous post we already provided you with the most important sources in order to follow WUDC from home. However, we still want to keep you up to date in a more extensive way then only posting useful links. This post gives an oversight of everything you need to know from day 1.

Examples include, but are not limited to: planting large forests where none previously existed, fertilizing the ocean with iron to dramatically increase the population of algae, and increasing cloud coverage so less sunlight reaches Earth’s surface.
