How will growing algae change the world and improve our lives? The International Algae Competition posed this question as a global challenge to design visionary algae food and energy systems. 140 participants from 40 countries submitted some amazing projects. Lets look into our future and see how algae production ponds and photobioreactors will move into landscapes, living buildings with green photosynthetic membranes, and eco-communities producing local food and energy. 2011 International Algae Competition asked: What will be the next algae foods and recipes that will transform our health? What are the best production systems to work effectively on a community scale? How will algae production be designed into landscapes, buildings and communities? the first two videos are about the competition, the others were submitted by participants.
