Much, maybe most, of what we learn and know about ‘the environment’, we know from the media, broadly defined.

MIT computer scientist Nicholas Negroponte enthused in his book Being Digital in 1995 that the digital landscape was giving rise to a new generation which was free of old prejudices and ignored the limitations of geographical proximity as the only basis for friendship, collaboration, games and neighbourliness.

The environmental crisis is a fundamental element of our lives on the globe today, and we cannot conceive of life in the next generation without at the same time engaging with and responding to that crisis.
