MISSION POSSIBLE: Meet Lewis Pugh:
“I will never forget the first time I saw a polar bear. I was in awe of its absolute beauty. I realised at that moment that I may be one of the last people to see them alive. Their habitat is melting away rapidly with climate change. By swimming in vulnerable ecosystems, I want to draw attention to the impact of our actions. They say that seeing is believing and it's certainly true. I hope that through my swims, and the filming and reporting of them, I can act as the eyes of the world. So, whether I'm swimming around islands which are fast disappearing due to rising sea levels, or swimming across parts of the Arctic which were previously frozen over, I will swim – and stand for the future of our planet. I believe that each and every one of us can do something to ensure that future generations enjoy a safe and sustainable world.”
Lewis is our Mission Possible today. Learn about his cause, what you can do and how you can be the change right here!
THE BIG I: How would you maximize your living space? Think about it. Could you make a fridge that was 12 inches thick? Ideas like this are coming from the leaders of the future in the Electrolux Design Lab, an annual competition for undergraduate and graduate industrial design students. They are tasked with coming up with ideas for household appliances of the future! This year’s theme is “The 2nd Space Age”.
