Aiming to shed light on the sustainability goals we took part in a collaboration with Team:Patras, where we reasoned about the sustainability goals (SGD) our project would impact.
We felt this could be a perfect opportunity as our project can have a great impact on environmental problems, as we aim to synthetically produce palm oil which currently is extracted from palm trees.
While the collaboration simply included the making of a short video, it helped us reason more about the impact our project can have, and how it relates to goals which our society aims to achieve.
Also, the collaboration in itself is a wonderful way to display the joint impact that iGEM and synthetic biology can have for our society, which we applaud Team:Patras for.
