This book invites us to imagine our future living in cities where buildings are covered with photosynthetic skins and vertical gardens, collecting the sun's energy and producing food and energy for urban dwellers. Where greening desert coastlines produce food for millions of people, and algae systems recycle polluting wastes into high value animal food, fuel and biofertilizers.
Algae Competition is a global challenge to design our future with algae food and energy systems. As a participatory design game, the competition invited global citizens to design their own future with the foods they eat, systems that grow algae, and landscapes and cityscapes they dream of living in. 140 participants responded, representing 40 countries, and they submitted some amazing designs, projects and food ideas. This book reviews algae production, products and potential today, and premieres some amazing visions of our algae-influenced future.
