Fine Dust - Press Release
Fine Dust - Asthma is the most common chronic childhood disease and the biggest health threat that we are constantly exposed to.
While we can actively decide not to smoke or drink alcohol, we cannot protect ourselves from inhaling fine dust. The foundation nano-Control & the Hamburg Environmental Institute at the Biennale Architettura 2016 in Venice: On 20 and 21 August 2016, the Hamburg Environmental Institute is inviting the foundation nano-Control to the exhibition "Celebrating our human footprint" at the Biennale Architettura 2016 in Venice. Various activities and discussions on the subject of "indoor air quality" are planned.
Prof. Dr. Michael Braungart, chairman of the Hamburg Environmental Institute: "Fine dust pollution is assault and affects everyone. In Germany on average 20 times more people die due to fine dust exposure than due to traffic accidents".

Stop the Readmission of Glyphosate
The herbicide is proven to be harmful. Residues of Glyphosate are detectable in almost all of our food products.
The Hamburg Environmental Institute demands a licensing stop for this commonly used herbicide.
Currently, the active ingredient Glyphosate and Glyphosate containing products are in the readmission process of the European Union.
A ban of the herbicide products is urgent, because it is the most used herbicide worldwide and humans as well as animals cannot avoid contact.
Different national and international environmental NGOs, well-known scientific institutes, and different political parties demand the suspension of the license.
The herbicide products are classified as highly problematic and suspected to be carcinogenic by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of World Health Organization (WHO).
