🌞Space-based solar power, what? The UK has joined the U.S. and China on a plan to build a solar power station in space. The UK is currently considering a £16 billion space-based solar power station proposal, which could enable it to achieve its climate goals as it promises cleaner and more consistent renewable energy than Earth-based solar power farms.
This project is going to produce not only important research and development but it will also generate great jobs and more green for many. This YouTube video is pretty exciting... tap here!

🏆Rewarding sustainability in architecture African-German architect Diebedo Francis Kere made history on March 15 as the first African to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize. He is considered a sustainable architect, and won the Pritzker Prize for his inspiring and sustainable projects. "I want my buildings to inspire the user, to make the user happy," Kere said.
With his preference to use local materials, Kere helps show the world that there is really no need from building shortages, but rather a need for adaptation to serving people over creating profits.
