Welcome to the Glass Age : celebrating the United Nations International Year of Glass 2022. Interested to learn more of the global glass industry s story and what glass has given Society? Want to know about its environmental impact? Need to discover how glassy products can improve everyone s living conditions? You can uncover more in these pages: they target those with a non-specialist interest, they are richly illustrated and they focus on the UN 2030 goals.
The book s thirteen chapters cover such diverse topics as: the role of glass in health; energy conservation and generation; sustainability and communications, the transmission and accessing of information. Essays on Museums, Education, Art and Architecture examine trends in design and use, and how glassy artefacts help to tackle welfare issues.
Of course, a little more than 200 pages cannot say it all. We particularly hope that you the reader will be encouraged to dream your own dreams and join the action yourselves.
