Dear reader. There are things that you simply have to consider, whether you want or not. The climate is such a thing. It used to be a subject for geographers, meteorologists and others with special interests, while most people were satisfied with the weather forecast on TV or, if they really burned for it, becoming members of environmental grassroots organisations.Today the subject is at the top of the media’s and politicians’ lists of interests and has hence become a topic for us all. All of the actors that filter the growing flow of information for us – journalists, politicians, scientists, opinion makers, and TV specialists – always come to the same conclusion: we must take the environment seriously.

Does nature have a future? It hardly even has a present. It is of course a question of how we define nature
Cradle to Cradle is a radical rethinking of the way we design and construct our surroundings. The idea is to let products be born and reborn in a cyclic system. The central point is that waste should be eliminated by transforming it into nourishment, which can be fed directly into a new product cycle. If the ideas are combined with political will and action, we can be well on the way into a climate-friendly paradigm shift for production and design
