Last week marked a historic occasion in human history as we saw our global population rise to over 7 billion people.
This event sparked discussion about human achievements that have brought about this change, and also about issues that are bound to get worse due to the resources required to sustain such a large number of people.
One of the main questions that has come into focus in recent decades concerns how we can live in a way that is less detrimental to our planet.
For this issue, our contributors are bringing you information about the status of environmental policy and the Green movements in their countries.
Find out what Japanese citizens call a “green curtain,” how energy policy in Germany has changed in recent years, and where Colombia ranks worldwide in terms of environmental initiatives.
Hope you enjoy, and perhaps learn something new about going green around the globe!
