Memory is not a self-defining safe

The memory of Shoah, when it was born, had a specific and universal character. The theme of never again seemed to be the great issue on which everyone was called to reflect. Remembering Holocaust meant stating vehemently that what had occurred to Jews should not be repeated for any human being. Today, however, we see how that ideal charge seems to fade away...


The Olympionic Righteous

It is precisely among sportspeople that we find some Righteous figures who fought for life and human dignity, giving us an example which is even more important to remember in those difficult days. 


A Lesson from the Righteous for Those Fighting Climate Change

Many politicians and public figures calling on others to go to war against climate change have failed to make even small reductions in the comfort of their own lifestyles. Far from morally elevating figures, such individuals become analogous to politicians conscripting others to fight a war while they themselves refuse to even observe the rationing of food they impose on others.


Will this be the century of water conflicts?

We wanted to focus on the concept of conflict because we believe that environmental instability can lead to strong political and security instability. We are increasingly moving towards a world that will be environmentally and climatically different from the one human beings have had over the last 11,000 years, and the way in which climate change is mainly visible is through water.


Global change and conflicts for resources

Most water is used in farming and livestock, but 30% of food produced in the world and presumably, 20% of water used are wasted. We are basically drying out populations to produce food that we then throw away. "It is crucial to legally guarantee the right to water and the right to the environment as constitutional principles of each country and as international laws".


Righteous change

"There are so many things we can do every day that can make a difference for the planet. We are defining the future of the polar bear just by what we choose to put on our plates daily". By Anne de Carbuccia, environmental artist.
