Today, April 22, 2010, we celebrate Earth Day, a festival that is held in spring in the northern hemisphere, in autumn in the southern one. 40 years have passed since April 22, 1970, when twenty million Americans answering the call of Senator Gaylord Nelson first participated in a demonstration in defense of our planet and its resources. Born as university movement, over time, Earth Day has become an educational and informative event. Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, but also represents the greatest opportunità to build a sustainable economy, now and in the future. Earth Day 2010 can be a turning point to advance climate policy, energy efficiency, renewable energy and green jobs.
Earth Day Network is now galvanizing millions who make personal commitments to sustainability. Earth Day 2010 is a pivotal opportunity for individuals, corporations and governments to join together and create a global green economy. Join the more than one billion people in 190 countries that are taking action for Earth Day!

11september

It’s raining today on Ground Zero, falling raindrops with tears. Images, pictures, faces that families keep alive – the memory of the 11th September 2001. Thousands of umbrellas give shelter and hide people’s heart from the inquisitive cameras and reflectors, at Ground Zero.

The tragedy of the 11th September 2001 has made clear that who grants security is not safe himself. This has determined a global scared and uncertain atmosphere.

However, the human spirit of survival is stronger. Despite hard events, global economic crisis and other sources of disease, the search of sustainable solutions continues and reinforces. Human beings always try to improve their quality life, most often by repairing their mistakes. For instance, forests are destroyed and, on the other side, new trees are planted. Besides, natural resources are exhausted, while someone is fighting to preserve them.

That’s the never-ending struggle for the human being and the planet where he lives.
