On Sustainability with Katherine Richardson

Katherine Richardson’s overall focus is to better understand the role of biological processes and biodiversity in the cycling of carbon in the upper ocean, and how this impacts food webs and climate change. Most of her research has been on marine plankton (primarily phytoplankton) and how these small beings act on a global stage.

Here Katherine Richardson, who is participating in the next global sustainable development report, talks about the importance of communicating who is using most resources, the key factors to account for in order to change our food systems, our energy systems, and economy, to move towards a sustainable future.
