Buildings consume vast amounts of energy and pollute the environment in various ways but façades can play a significant role in reducing energy consumption and alleviating buildings' negative impacts on the environment. Through a case study of Shiraz, Iran, this article discusses how using smart materials in buildings' facades can help dramatically to attain SDGs 7, 9, 11 and 13.

Some of the greatest challenges for today's architecture are multifunctionality, energy saving and sustainability — problems that insects have partially solved during their evolution. From biomimetics in architecture design and materials, to decomposition of waste management and intelligent algorithms to reduce congestion, insects are an unlimited source of inspiration for innovations to advance SDGs 11 and 12.
This paper discusses the challenges in safely re-opening indoor sport centres and the measures already suggested by others to partly tackle these challenges. It also elaborates three potential additional measures and based on these additional measures, it suggests the concept of a certificate of equivalence that could allow indoor sports centers with such a certificate to re-open safely and more rapidly. It also attempts to stimulate increased preparedness of indoor sports centers that should allow them to remain open safely during potential next waves of SARS-CoV-2 as well as future pandemics. This contributes to SDGs 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 16.
