Coexisting with the Earth: how our happiness can save the environment€ 3.00
A climate changing unexpectedly, global warming leading to famines, wars and epic migratory movements, in front of everyone’s eyes, unanimously feared, indictors of an environmental collapse creeping ever closer. Human beings have forgotten to look after the world given to them to live in, we need to find out why. But what matters is, it is not all completely lost. We try to radically change the situation in the little time we still have left. It is about choosing to be free, happy and healthy. No one is just “a drop in the ocean” in the Earth system, which can transform “drops” into a tsunami of change. Every single gesture to protect the environment is crucial for our common future, they can be large or small actions, but they all improve the quality of life.
