Going for green: Biology for planetary sustainability

Curated Collections

Our green planet is beginning to show a lot of signs of decay triggered by the demands of our modern lifestyle and constantly growing population numbers. It is our responsibility to try to balance these factors with a more sustainable way of life to keep our planet green. However, very often the proposed solutions are worse than the initial problems and trigger more damage. Focusing our efforts on technologies that take advantage of nature could be a more sensible approach to reach that aim.

With that purpose, we have envisioned a collection for our magazine content exploring biological solutions that could be applied to reduce our CO2 emissions, get rid of plastics that are currently not degradable, produce food in a more sustainable manner or produce energy, among others.
