What if you could farm vegetables AND fish in the same space, with little to no fertilizer or pesticides? We visited an aquaponics farm in the middle of a city where this is already happening - to see how future food production could look like.

We're destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn't need to be this way. Our new channel Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change. Every Friday we'll take a truly global look at how to get us out of this mess.
