Global warming and climate change threaten our planet and all its living creatures.
The majority of greenhouse gas emissions in Iceland come from drained agriculture fields and disrupted wetlands, or about 66%.
Iceland is part of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, which emphasize the importance of restoring ecosystems and ensuring global food security.
In Hreiðurbyggð, near Kaldaðarnes in South Iceland, steps are taken towards a sustainable future.
The design and philosophy of the village, emphasizes on finding new and sustainable ways to live in harmony with nature and help restore the now disrupted ecosystems. The village will then continue researching ecosystem restoration, and perform tests on various new and innovative solutions in greenhouse and sustainable agriculture.
