Data and Information Visualization are both a communication tool and device to relate phenomen and explore them. A phenomenon, especially if complex, it may be faced through the development of visual forms, just as the night sky has been simplified thanks to the invention of constellations.

The observation of the insecurity phenomenon in one of its specific features, although developed as one single artefact, has been faced in two distinct phases:

During phase 1 student teams were asked to gather data and information from IPCC report, enriching it with other official sources (e.g. OECD, Human Development Reports). They tried to visualize as accurately as possible how these sources communicate the specific phenomenon.

In the second phase groups focused on one feature of the phenomenon, highlighting one actor within the system, and reconstructing it through a actors-relations-flows that has been explained during the course.
