The roadmap is you

The roadmap is you

We are at the end of a year extremely complicated, we know it. Energy crisis, economic crisis, an ongoing pandemic, an environmental emergency that we are unable to deal with seriously, and of course the infamous Russian invasion of Ukraine. All our cornerstones are now shaky: peace, welfare, health, democracy, progress. We have done nothing … Continue reading The roadmap is you

To go or not to go? The question mark on the climate conference.

To go or not to go? The question mark on the climate conference.

(And why - spoiler - in the end it is better to participate) The new COP27 that began yesterday and until November 18 in Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt does not start with great optimism. The disappointing results of COP26 in Glasgow, the global energy crisis triggered by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, with many countries in scattered … Continue reading To go or not to go?

Changing the built environment paradigm. Now.

Changing the built environment paradigm. Now.

When we founded Living Future Europe almost three years ago, we declared since from our statute what was our mission - to make the world work for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or disadvantage of anyone, catalysing the transformation toward communities that are socially just, culturally … Continue reading Changing the built environment paradigm. Now.

For example, “kintsugi,” the Japanese practice of highlighting and embellishing fractures and increasing the value of a broken object. This technique involves repairing the object (for example, a broken vase in … Continue reading Tsundoku

Sale e ricci di mare

Sale e ricci di mare

[the English version follows] Sono affascinato dalle isole, dal concetto stesso di isola, come entità, territorio, ove possibile, autosufficiente. Mi capita spesso di pensare che l’isola possa davvero rappresentare su piccola scala la nostra intera biosfera, il paradigma di come la sostenibilità potrebbe essere garantita a livello planetario. L’isola come una sorta di sistema chiuso … Continue reading Sale e ricci di mare

Change is about communicating it.

Change is about communicating it.

Just back from Klimahouse, the most important green building exhibition and congress in Italy (the eighteenth edition) for the first time in person after 2020, with a mixture of uncertainty and amazement about being able to see each other, meet, and design together again. We left the screens, the webinars, the calls. It is really … Continue reading Change is about communicating it.

The time for choices

The time for choices

I suppose many have read that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has just published their Sixth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis and that very few have actually read it (it’s almost 4,000 pages) or perhaps have read the 42-page summary. For those who haven't, here are two well done … Continue reading The time for choices

Restore is over. Long live Restore.

Restore is over. Long live Restore.

After six years from the beginning of this journey (the first RESTORE idea dates back to April 2015), and four years and a half from COST RESTORE proposal approval, the #CostRestore Action has come to its end, last April 30th, 2021. I would express my sincere thanks and gratitude to all the RESTORE members, stakeholders … Continue reading Restore is over. Long live Restore.
