Food systems 
White paper: Explore the future of food systems
How could global food systems better sustain our planet and its people by 2040?
This white paper explores the opportunities, key enablers and critical success factors for a preferred future by 2040, and outline global focus areas and collective actions to accelerate the transition.

Green news
An EU-wide enforcement project of the ECHA Forum found excessive levels of hazardous chemicals, such as lead and phthalates, in products that are sold to consumers.
In total 18 % of the inspected products breached the EU laws.
Among the most common common types of products breaching we found electrical devices, sports equipment, toys and fashion accessories. 

Green networks
Launch of a new academic research network on conflict and the environment
This is a community for academics and researchers engaged in the environmental monitoring and assessment of armed conflicts.
"Armed conflicts at all scales generate immediate and reverberating consequences for the environment. Thus the scope of our interests extend in time and space. From monitoring wars in near-real time, to considering the reverberating effects from historic conflicts. The network is open to all engaged in research globally, though primarily at those in or facing academia."
