Excerpts from fashioncrossover:
"Specialised in sustainability and circular design, French sustainable Haute Couture designer Aurelie Fontan established her label in London after graduating from the Edinburgh College of Art. With a Fine Art background, Aurelie pushes technological innovation and scientific discoveries to the forefront of her design process, combining avant-garde aesthetics and sustainable manufacturing methods.

With most of her fabrics made by hand and from scratch, she advocates for a technocraftivism that references her Parisian roots - couture craftsmanship - and a real focus on forward-thinking techniques - laser cutting, bio-mimicry, etc. Her collection TENSEGRITY tackles the issue of single-use plastic items, through upcycled cable ties that replace traditional seaming methods. This allows each piece to be easily recyclable. She also grew a dress from bacterias that are 100% biodegradable and compostable."

"From the educational world and now turned towards popular education, Framasoft is above all a network of projects, of which the first, directory https://framalibre.org, dates back to 2001.

These projects are run by people working together with the same desire: promote digital freedoms.

Respect for the fundamental freedoms of users, guaranteed by legal contracts (the free licenses), is at the heart of the librist movement and ensures that the human remains in control of the digital tool.

The Framasoft’s goal is to offer, mainly online, a set of concrete and practical tools to facilitate adoption:

of free software (directory, USB sticks, installer…);
of free cultural creations (blog, translation, publishing house…);
of free services (more than 30 free services in the project De-google-ify Internet).

Presented as a "gateway to the Free World", the network Framasoft wants to position itself as a bridge between the librarian community and the general public."

One of their projects is for example PeerTube, kind of a free, decentralised Youtube.

Filet Oh! Fish
2013 documentary by French director Nicolas Daniel and journalist Louis De Barbeyrac.

"In the past 40 years, global consumption of fish has doubled. Having decimated natural fish populations globally, the industrial food system has turned to mass-scale farming practices in order to sustain the unsustainable, supplying huge supermarket chains and commercial food outlets with cheap processed fish products. What do we know about this and these processes? And what of the lives of the fish? What about their health and the health of the waters in which they’re taken? Fillet-Oh!-Fish is the result of yet another indictment of the industrial food system, agriculture and factory farming—all of which have egregious implications to the health and well-being of species, and the planet as a whole. We see myriad mixes of pesticides and other chemicals, leading to toxic rivers and streams, the pervasiveness of the industrial food system, with glimpses into working conditions and processing methods, as well as the perniciousness of globalisation, with the world-wide reach of this crazy system that has hijacked a fundamental life-giver: food."

Own thought:
"The magnitude of health-damaging practices in Norway, for example the addition of poisonous Ethoxyquin into feed for farmed fish, doesn't match the healthful stereotype one has of a Nordic state.
Eye-opening to learn more about salmon production in the Baltic states or Pangasius in Vietnam."
