This assessment is aimed at understanding and identifying factors in human society at both the individual and collective levels, including behavioural, social, cultural, economic, institutional, technical and technological dimensions, that can be leveraged to bring about transformative change for the conservation, restoration and wise use of biodiversity, while taking into account broader social and economic goals in the context of sustainable development. It explores the drivers of and motives behind broad societal changes and transitions to inform the design of relevant policies, communication and engagement campaigns and other actions.

Land is under pressure from humans and climate change, but it is part of the solution

Land is already under growing human pressure and climate change is adding to these pressures. At the same time, keeping global warming to well below 2 °C can be achieved only by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors including land and food, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in its latest report on Thursday.

Micro- and nanoplastics: currently no widespread risk to humans and environment, but situation could change if pollution continues

This is the verdict of a report of leading scientific experts in an interdisciplinary project of European academies. The scientists investigated what is, what is partially and what is not known about micro- and nanoplastics, i.e. tiny particles under 5mm in length, in both nature and society. Their report suggests that microplastics in the environment and in several components of the human diet do not cause harm, given the concentration levels. Meanwhile, the evidence is less certain with regard to the effects of nanoplastics, which are very difficult to measure.

Travels with apples

On the long journey from the fruit plantation to the retailer's shelf, fruits can quickly perish. In particular, the refrigeration inside the cargo containers is not always guaranteed and existing methods for measuring the temperature are not sufficiently reliable. A sensor developed at Empa solves this problem. It looks like a piece of fruit and acts like a piece of fruit – but is actually a spy.
