This year, Guinness World Records 2022 highlights the challenge facing us all: the climate crisis. 

From a plastic overproduction to pollution, from recycling to the ever-growing investment in sustainable energies, we capture a snapshot of this year’s highs and lows in terms of sustainability.

The most southerly climate protest ever was organized by astrophysicist Benjamin Eberhardt (Germany) on in September 2019.
