MUMBAI: Discovery Science will be bringing to its viewer's an anthology named Designing Nature which will consist of two series - Ecopolis and Eco-Tech. Both the series offer revolutionary concepts and cutting edge technologies that might hold the key to reversing environmental destruction. Designing Nature will premier on 6 January and will be aired every Sunday at 9 pm.
The series Ecopolis explores a realistic vision of what our cities might look like by the year 2050. It provides an in-depth analysis of the possible problems in the future megacities which might be dirty, polluted, running out of food, water and fuel, and prone to blackouts. Hosted by Nobel Prize winning scientist Dr. Daniel Kammen, Ecopolis investigates the threats and evaluates merits of the model to the future city. The host also shares his views on how to reduce the carbon footprint.
Eco-Tech presents the research undertaken by scientists, chemists, biologists, geologists, engineers, and other visionaries that will transform how we power our vehicles, build our homes and offices, generate energy, manage our waste, and cope with increasingly extreme weather. For decades, scientists have been steadily gathering evidence that mankind's current way of life cannot be sustained much longer. The series showcases amazing solutions that some of the best minds have come up with and also "how and why" these technologies work.
Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific senior vice president and general manager - South Asia Rahul Johri said, "Discovery Science offers thought-provoking insights into the impact of science and technology on our daily lives. Designing Nature will give viewers an interesting look at many breakthrough technologies that could transform our cities."
Discovery Science is available on both analogue and DTH platforms including Tata Sky, Dish TV, Videocon D2H and Airtel Digital TV.
