Our planet is in trouble. Plant and animal species are becoming extinct at least 1,000 times faster than they did before humans inhabited the earth. Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere reached a record high in 2013. Levels of the metal mercury in much of the world's oceans are double to triple what they were before the industrial revolution.

There are more and more calls for us to lead “sustainable” lives. But what does that mean? Helping us to explore this concept are Liette Vasseur, professor, Department of Biological Sciences; Ian Brindle, professor, Department of Chemistry; and Diane Dupont, professor, Department of Economics.
