I can see some intersectionality between the Breathing Games and a Horticultural Project that I will be working on. I would need ideas on how to test it and explore ideas on how you can clean air in Urban Environments.
I agree we do have quite an exciting opportunity, and to assist in standard farming/gardening, etc. but also to take it a step further and do things that previously weren’t being done, or at least not done on a high level. Such as air purification and carbon sequestration.
We could also use these technologies to turn urban/city locations into areas where we sequester carbon. Think of indoor plants running from solar powered grow lights which capture carbon in the form of plant mass, then that carbon/plant mass can be used to help create new soil. So the plants themselves can clean the air, and also create soil for new plants.
Rather than urban areas simply causing the release of carbon into the air (due to consuming electricity which relies on fossil fuels) we could actually reverse the process and make urban areas potentially capture as much, or more, carbon as they cause to be released. As well as having a net positive impact on air quality instead of a net negative impact, and feeding people, or at least improving peoples’ work environments with ornamental plants.
Cities could potentially become the new forests in terms of being places which improve environmental conditions instead of being a detriment to them.
