-We need to move towards intelligent energy production and consumption:
It is necessary to pay attention to our production and consumption models. Human beings are characterized by consuming more resources than they can produce. Smart consumption would be a truly effective solution.
The consumption of non-renewable energies is incredibly high. We are depleting what little resources we still have left. That is why the use of clean and natural sources such as the sun, the power of the sea, or the wind, will undoubtedly be an escape route.
-Plastic: the number one enemy of our seas and soils.
The situation of plastic is also alarming, the damage that this material causes to our seas and soils is surprising. What is certain is that there are many alternatives to minimize the damage. The simplest one: Avoid all single-use plastics as much as possible. Choose to reuse and recycle.
Environmental education is and will be the fundamental pillar to make any change in our environment. It is necessary to make people aware and treat this topic as a compulsory subject at every level of study.
