Technology and Innovation

Publication date:
July 2012
Technology and the environment have historically not been easy bedfellows. Innovations, mechanisation, and industrialisation have been responsible for large swathes of environmental degradation over the past century, but could they also prove its saviour? In this edition of environmental SCIENTIST Professor Carolyn Roberts interrogates the opportunities and possibilities that technology innovation provides in the ongoing effort to reverse environmental damage and to create a sustainable future for all.
