How are people impacted by participating in programs of The Sustainability Laboratory? We recently caught up with Johanny Pestalozzi, who won our Sustainability Prize at EARTH University (@u_earth) in 2010. Now a decade later, Johanny updated us on how her participation in the Sustainability Prize program impacted her way of thinking and helped guide her career. Please enjoy this interview with Johanny [link in bio!!]. .

Do you believe that this thriving oasis of plants, animals, insects, and life used to be a barren, degraded patch of desert? This is The Sustainability Laboratory's ecosystem restoration initiative at Project Wadi Attir. It demonstrates an effective approach to combatting desertification, enhancing biodiversity, and mitigating the effects of climate change. .

It's #ClimateWeek! Scroll through to learn more about our work at The Sustainability Laboratory and how it addresses climate change. . [Caption text] Slide 1: "How are we addressing climate change at The Sustainability Laboratory? Our approach to sustainability strives for high resource productivity while employing regenerative energy sources, and demonstrating "closed-loop" systems that convert wastes into resources. We research and showcase innovative, green technologies, and our sustainable development projects provide opportunities to implement these closed-loop systems on the ground. For example..." . Slide 2: "The ecosystem restoration initiative at our flagship project, Project Wadi Attir, restored a formerly degraded tract of land to productivity, demonstrating an effective, low-cost approach to combating desertification, enhancing biodiversity, and contributing to mitigating effects of climate change. Today, the site sequesters 3-5 tons of CO2-equivalent per hectare per year into soil and biomass!" . Slide 3: "The integrated infrastructure of green technologies at Project Wadi Attir is designed to enable the project to meet its energy needs while limiting harmful emissions and demonstrating a waste-to-resources approach. Technologies employed at the project include: a drip irrigation system, biogas production, a composting facility, a soil enhancement program, wastewater recycling, and a hybrid solar energy and storage system." . Slide 4: "Our research, development, and educational programs will continue to address climate issues as part of our comprehensive approach to sustainability.

We've been a little quiet on social media recently, but here at The Sustainability Laboratory we've been working harder than ever since the COVID-19 pandemic began to adapt and persevere through this new and unforeseen challenge. We believe that, in the face of such a serious global challenge, our work in advancing the sustainability agenda is now more important than ever. . We are also pleased to share that Project Wadi Attir, our flagship sustainable development project with a Bedouin community in the Negev, is also adapting in spite of the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Some operational changes have been implemented onsite, but overall the project is moving forward, and we are working hard to ensure a thriving future for it. .
