Nature and technology: friends or enemies?

The Internet of Nature Podcast explores how increasingly "smart" cities have embraced technology for mobility, lighting, and waste management but have left urban ecology behind in the digital revolution.

Join me as I interview top entrepreneurs & innovators on their technologies for building greener and smarter cities. Each episode contains powerful stories behind the innovator, delves into questions usually shied away from, and provides inspiration to bridge the gap between nature and technology.
