This is how innovation is helping communities fight climate change

Different vegetables growing in an automated greenhouse prototype by Agrilution are seen in Munich, Germany, August 28, 2015. The Munich start-up Agrilution developed an automated greenhouse appliance known as "plantCube" with the intention of bringing the production of healthier food closer to people. The machine, which is the size of a common built-in fridge, uses special LED lamps to generate different climate situations within the unit to enable the cultivation of a variety of vegetables. plantCube's developers say the appliance should fit in every kitchen or used in restaurants and supermarkets.
