Here you can find our tips to learn more about the ecological problems we are facing! We want to provide you with a broad variety of sources, from documentaries to scientific articles, so that everyone can learn in their own way. Keep in mind that not the maker of a documentary or writer of a book wants to tell you a story. It is always good to think about whether this is objective and form your own opinion. Scientific articles should be peer-reviewed. This means that other scientists will look at the results and verify these with their own findings. Therefore, these articles are very reliable, but also complex and hard to understand. So, get informed, but always be critical!
