Mining The Deep
The concept of deep seabed mining has been around for decades, but our growing demand for renewable energy is making this far fetched idea...a reality. Renewable energy resources are perceived to be the solution to the world’s climate change problem. But, their production requires a lot of rare minerals which often come from questionable sources. What do we have to gain and lose from Mining the Deep?
How does a grouper from the Seychelles end up in a restaurant’s fish tank in Hong Kong? What damage is the banquet culture in Asia doing to marine species and what can be done? Three Billion is a four-part podcast series about the seafood trade in Hong Kong, China and Asia. It’s made in collaboration with chinadialogueocean and sponsored by Swire Group Charitable Trust.
Groundbreaking new podcast series 1986 from Sustainable Asia interviews Chinese and global ocean advocates to investigate the overfishing problem that is pushing Chinese fishing vessels into the South China Sea and beyond to find their catch.

In The Plasticity Podcast, Marcy speaks with innovators and entrepreneurs in the world of recycling, to find out what needs to happen in Asia for us to move away from the plastic linear economy of produce, consume, and discard and create a more circular economy of reuse and recycle.
Eight Million takes you through the ins and outs of plastic waste treatment globally and in China. It’s an illuminating look at how China is closing their doors on imported plastic waste, and turning their back on industrial pollution in favour of building an 'ecological civilisation'.
