The new online magazine,, currently features interviews with ocean advocate Alexandra Cousteau, architect William McDonough, former Maldivian president Mohamed Nasheed, venture capitalist Paul Matteucci and others, along with articles and multimedia covering topics such as climate change adaptation, cities inspired by nature, green chemistry, sustainable agriculture, B corporations, geothermal energy, recycled art and more.
