How Women in India are Fighting Climate Change With Mangrove Trees

Between India and Bangladesh, the Sundarbans mangrove forest (which sits on one of the largest deltas in the world) is urgently affected by climate change, as rising sea levels and eroding embankments threaten nearly 4.5 million lives. This is why over 15,000 women from the surrounding villages have begun planting hundreds of thousands more mangrove trees in the open waters in order to create a …

Experimental Nuclear Fusion Reactor Proves Limitless, Clean Power Is Possible

Curbing climate change means finding a near-limitless, zero-carbon power source. To do that scientists have often turned to nuclear fusion—the process of fusing two or more atoms together, which releases massive amounts of energy (and is also the process that makes the sun and stars shine). But while scientists have been able to generate this energy before, they haven’t been able to sustain it for …

How Design Can Respond to Environmental Crises

Between increasing natural disasters, rising sea levels and melting ice caps, a climate change-induced apocalypse seems very real and us humans—with our endless capacity for production and consumption—are responsible. But does creating always harm the planet or are there ways that creative design can foster the human instinct to produce without harming the planet? Can we foster commensalism (a symbiotic relationship between species in which no harm …
