While Asia’s Dragon and Tiger economies are ramping up the continent’s status on the world stage, the industrial evolutions contained within are prime polluters, contributing mightily to the onset of climate change. Natural disasters and extreme weather changes are happening with alarming frequency, with already fragile eco-systems hanging in the balance. But there are inspirational thinkers and doers, working hard to right the environmental wrongs imposed by the rush towards progress, and to encourage everyday citizens to do the same. This three-part series looks at three areas in the fight against climate change – power, waste and lifestyle – to shine a spotlight on these changemakers and the unconventional ideas that just might make a difference. Edible cutlery, anyone?
