We asked "How will algae change the world and improve our lives?" This article series explores the future of algae as seen through the prism of the entries from the International Algae Competition.

There are so many remarkable and creative entries in the competition. The series of six articles features some of the entries and the visions they represent for algae in our future with design ideas for algae production landscapes, sustainable and affordable algae production systems for medicines, food, feed, energy, nutrients, water remediation, carbon capture and new algae foods.
