Planning for the future and breaking new ground across industries must involve improving our natural environment along the way. Our lives and livelihoods depend on it.
A podcast series is now available, with episodes uploaded regularly, in which we hear from people leading the way, not only in imagining, but also providing solutions for a future with environmental sustainability in mind. Professor Andy Lowe, Environment Institute Theme Leader, talks to scientific experts, industry leaders, artists, adventurers and committed personalities who make connections in their local and global communities, making life on earth a priority in their grand plans.
They are Eco Futurists.
