10 ways to take action for our ocean
The global sea surface temperature has hit a new record. Globally, we have already lost half of our mangroves and half of all coral reefs. And pollution is increasing: 80% of global sewage flowing into our ocean untreated, and more than eight million tons of plastic entering the ocean each year.
How will the oceans adjust to climate change?
Sea ice plays a crucial role in regulating ocean temperatures and supporting vital underwater ecosystems. Due to ocean warming, the current sea ice levels are at their lowest recorded point, resulting in a decrease of cold, salty, oxygen-rich water. How will the oceans adjust and store all the heat?
Technology in a holistic approach to ensure inclusion
2.7 billion of the world’s population remain offline, the majority of whom are located in one of the 46 UN-designated Least Developed Countries (LDCs). Connectivity and digital technology alone cannot bridge the divide. There needs to be a holistic approach that focuses on the value technology provides.
Four smart renewable energy solutions
In its report “Fostering Effective Energy Transition”, the World Economic Forum warned that progress towards net-zero had slowed over the previous decade. The IPCC says the rise in greenhouse gas emissions must be halted by 2025. Fast and effective renewable energy innovations will be critical.
The power of emerging technologies to mitigate human crises
Artificial intelligence (AI) and automation have the potential to revolutionize various industries, leading to increased efficiency, productivity and convenience. Biotechnology and genetic engineering offer unprecedented possibilities for improving healthcare, agriculture and environmental sustainability.
3 key takeaways of the G7 summit in May 2023
The G7 summit had potentially far-reaching implications that could help accelerate action to decarbonize global economies, protect biodiversity, and enhance circularity. The three key takeaways focused on the phasing out of fossil fuels, boosting renewable energy production and ending plastic pollution.
