The online edition of the print magazine deals for example with the question of how future cities can adapt to population growth and limited resources.
The online magazine is specifically tailored to the needs of internet users with different online devices. Contents are automatically adapted to the particular screen size and can therefore be easily accessed from desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. “This enables users to read our magazine comfortably, both while on the move and at home,” said Elisabeth Schick, Senior Vice President Communications & Government Relations BASF Group. “Additionally, the online version provides in-depth information through videos, animations and graphics.” It also offers quick access to BASF’s social media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
