VIs island Wearactive adventure retreat

Vis, Croatia
This past week, we called the idyllic Croatian island of Vis home, while we experienced the eco-active retreat, WearActive. Alongside the island's inherently sustainable ethos, owners Craig and Xania have managed to turn their passion for plant-based living and enjoying the outdoors into a retreat for everyone to come and enjoy the simple life.

Experiencing off-grid, sustainable van life

Devon, UK
We experienced sustainable, self-sufficient living in Devon, UK. We thoroughly enjoyed our adventures living on the lush open farmland of southwest England, and would highly recommend it to rediscover nature, and to disconnect from the outside world for a few days...or forever!

WWF UK HQ - THE LIVING PLANET CENTRE

Woking, UK
This is one of the world's most sustainable buildings! The WWF UK's Living Planet Centre is a fantastic example of green architecture and sustainable construction. The eco-friendly building was designed with eco-mindedness, and local environmental conscientiousness in mind.
 

World's Most
Sustainable Cities

We visited some of the world's most sustainable cities to find out which of them can claim the title of the most sustainable city in the world. Each city prioritises balancing its history and culture(s) with green architecture & sustainable developments that have the potential to save our future. From Copenhagen to Singapore to Songdo, each city focuses on innovations large and small with both the short- and long-term in mind!

Feeding the future at an underground vertical farm

Liverpool, UK
As the global population continues to explode, the need for farms to mass produce food is ever-growing. This has the potential to create a number of issues for existing methods of food production, forcing food growers to begin to think outside the box: enter vertical farming. By growing food vertically, resources including land, labour, and time can all be saved, while allowing farms like Greens For Good to maximise taste and nutrients.
 

Green buildings saving
the world

Can design help save the world? We visited the World's Greenest Buildings to see if eco design innovations can help transform cities into carbon-neutral havens. By incorporating nature, renewable technologies and climate change solutions into their buildings, eco-architects are taking the first steps toward fighting for our future.

Copenhill: The outdoor sport power plant

Amager, Copenhagen, Denmark
CopenHill is a project designed by the Bjarke Ingels Group, and completed in 2017. In 2019, we visited CopenHill to witness why it's called the world cleanest waste to energy powerplant. The roof of the plant was designed to be used as the ultimate outdoors activity space in an otherwise flat Copenhagen.

The living, Breathing walls of the world

In this video we visit some of the best examples of living plant walls and look at the many benefits they provide us and the planet. These plant walls are becoming increasingly popular in major cities, and offer hope that the sustainable architecture of the future will have green walls and vertical gardens fully integrated.

WWF 2000 km cycle across europe in support of the amazon emergency appeal

London, UK to Venice, Italy
Over the course of 30 days in the summer of 2020, Ben and his friend Austin bike-packed across Europe in the aim of completing their 2000km long distance cycle. Travelling and camping in over nine countries, the team's goal was to raise £2,000 for WWF's Amazon Emergency Appeal, protecting the rainforest from the fires that ravaged that spring and summer. Ben and Austin's incredible journey ended up raising £2,600, and immeasurable awareness for the plight of the Amazon.
 

The eden project

Cornwall, UK
The Eden Project in England holds the world's largest greenhouse! The project was set up to show its visitors the importance of saving the world's rainforests and the biodiversity therein. The Eden Project is constructed using huge geodesic domes which hold two biomes, one holding the indoor rainforest and the other holding an array of mediterranean plants.

Shipping container cities

London, UK
As the tiny house movement continues to grow rapidly, and as more container buildings are being constructed around the world, one must ask, "Is this the future of sustainable architecture?" In this video we visited a range of shipping container projects, including Buck Street Market and Container City in London, in order to investigate the potential for growth in the future.
 

Farms of the future

London, UK
We went inside a vertical farm to see exactly how vertical farming works. Well we went inside an urban farm in London to see how sustainable agriculture is being brought into the city. Will we be growing all of our food indoors in the future? Quite possibly if they taste this good!

Is bamboo the super building material?

Bali, Indonesia
Bamboo is said to be the most sustainable building material in the world, so we took a trip to Bali to learn more about how it could help save the world. The rapidly renewable, carbon-neutral material has the potential to be a key in the fight against climate change. From eco-friendly products to sustainably designed green homes, bamboo is a material that has endless green potential, being realised especially in Ubud, Bali at the Green School and Green Village, where innovative architecture is using bamboo instead of concrete.

The wind farm argument

Liverpool, UK
What are the pros and cons of wind turbines? Many people worry about the effects that renewable energy can have on the surrounding environment. Some claim that they can be noisy, harm landscapes and destroy biodiversity. We visited Frodsham Wind Farm, one of the largest onshore wind farms in the UK  to see if renewable energy and nature can coexist in the same place.
