Almost half a century ago, the Norwegian philosopher Arne Næss created the concept of deep ecology. We still have much to learn from his principles today.
The Neolithic revolution brought with it the advent of agriculture. What exactly did this entail and who should we thank for it?
We should not only think of mushrooms for their culinary uses – fungi hold immense ecological potential to repair the environment.
Within his lifetime, Viktor Schauberger was often underappreciated. Yet today, the Austrian appears to have been a technological and ecological visionary.
Nature’s colours and mathematical structures are fascinating. Why do the works of nature delight us so much?
In many cultures and languages, trees – their roots, trunks and branches – carry great narrative significance.
From the memories of flowers to the sociability of trees, the cognitive capacities of our vegetal cousins are all around us.

Consciousness is perhaps the biggest riddle in nature. In this video we explore the origins of consciousness and take a closer look on how unaware things became aware.
All around us are magic machines that suck carbon out of the air, cost very little and build themselves.
