6 Greener future?

It is now clear to most people that global warming,  the challenges of climate change and keeping our ecosystems healthy are becoming massive, global and so complex that it seems overwhelming.

nj11The issue is far too encompassing to leave to some smaller interest groups.  Ecological thinking sees complex relationships and interactions among industrial plants, workers, health care, energy, pollution, and economic growth as no less part of the planet’s ecosystem than a forest.

As a consequence, we must develop new technologies, new architectures, new ways of planning our societies and infrastructure.

We have to change attitudes as well. We have to adapt to the world’s ecological limits if we want a sustainable future.

If we want a safe, prosperous, clean and healthy society that can last also for the coming generations, we have to plan and work for it. Now.

On September 25th 2015, most countries in the world adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.

For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you.
