Our Planet

  • Discontinued

UNEP’s quarterly magazine Our Planet features authoritative articles on the theme of environment and development by world scientific and political leaders. Each issue of Our Planet concentrates on one specific theme, tying into international conferences, meetings (the Commission on Sustainable Development), events (World Environment Day), or dealing with issues of our time (Water or Climate Change). Our Planet reports on international developments and action. It reviews current thinking, suggests solutions, and debates the key issues of environmentally sustainable development.

Most of us go up or down in the world, but for Bertrand Piccard the alternatives were particularly acute. His grandfather, Auguste Piccard, set altitude records by balloon, becoming the first person to enter the stratosphere and thus observe the curvature of the Earth. And his father, Jacques, set the submarine depth record by descending nearly 11,000 metres to touch the bottom of the Mariana Trench.
