Rooftop gardens have the potential to revolutionise urban environments into the future as they boost biodiversity, clean polluted air, fight climate change and offer a pleasing aesthetic.
What are “the commons” and why should we care about their protection and security? We take a look at the natural and cultural resources at stake.
We look at the damage green-technology minerals may do and how we might overcome the challenge.
