Venice, the lagoon and sustainable tourism

By on 20/01/2020 in blog | 0 comments

I am taking inspiration from recent events in order to talk about Venice, the Venetian lagoon and sustainable tourism. In recent months there has been a lot of talk about Venice, high water (high tide correctly) and lagoon. The extent of the last high water made more evident than ever how a great and dangerous change is taking place. Taking into account sustainability is now something we owe to the environment. And to Venice as well. Well, I am not an expert and I do not want to talk about things I do not know. What I want is to reassure all friends, especially foreigners: no, there is no risk of drowning. Unless you swim in the canal, or jump off a bridge, but this goes under the name of imbecility. At most, if you like walking barefoot in the high water you could meet a pantegana (big, big rat) and get the “samoro nero” (distemper) otherwise it’s all right, you can...

Sustainability and a flower

By on 14/10/2019 in blog | 0 comments

Sustainability and a flower in All you need is a flower -100 hours for the environment. In more than 100 hours of events we have tried to answer and ask questions about a sustainable world. Sustainability, a term that embraces concepts that are difficult to summarize if not by using the 17 goals of the UN Agenda for Sustainable Development. Even keeping the Agenda as a “compass” it is still difficult to give the full meaning of the five days of speeches held last June. In order to make your reading easier we have decided to give the structure of Air, Land and Water to Quaderno 11. We really hope that you can enjoy the complexity of what has been discussed. Air Three articles dealing with the air element. The destructive air of the Vaia storm – by Thierry Robert Luciani -, the extremely polluted air of fine dust – by Salvatore Patti – and finally the...

100 hours for Environment

By on 29/07/2019 in blog | 0 comments

100 hours for Environment, the event that took place from 5 to 9 June, whose full title was “All you need is a flower – 100 hours for environment” “Ci vuole un fiore – 100 ore per l’ambiente”. The entire event, 5 days, was included in ASVIS Festival Program, the annual Sustainable Development Festival the greatest event in Italy dedicated to the 2030 Agenda The flower is a symbol of changing perspective, as in our cover photo The small, delicate blue flowers are in front of a devastated area in Italy. We will not show the devastation, we will not specify the place, what is enough to know is that “ All you need a flower” We have collected most of the speeches of the 5 days event, which took place at Negozio Piave 67 , in a short video, just a few minutes. In a couple of months we will have a publication. What is  important, and that has emerged with...

The (tiring) rise

By on 01/07/2019 in blog | 0 comments

The (tiring) rise is the term that has immediately come up when we have seen the ​​photos sphere. And it is also the term that defines the long and  sometimes tiring way of Progetto Re-Cycle better than others. We did not stop and a few days ago we became an APS – Associazione di Promozione Sociale – which will allow us to carry out ongoing projects (and new ones coming) more incisively. Our story is not straightforward, quite the opposite. We started as a scientific online magazine in 2015, then we added the association – end of 2016 – and now this additional step. One thing is certain: change does not scare us It wasn’t easy  to define what Progetto Re-Cycle is, to find our identity – even if we prefer soul – and how it is evolving. Joining together culture and economic processes, association, society and business for someone is probably still...

The butterfly effect from Italy to Costa Rica

By on 13/06/2019 in blog | 0 comments

The Butterfly effect, when small actions can contribute generating great changes In a tiny little village (no it is not the village of An early Christmas Carol), up on the green hills in Friuli Venezia Giulia, there were (and still there are) many – but really many ,many, butterflies. You can see butterflies everywhere, on the wall of the houses, in the streets and in their own house. The butterfly house is so big, three big apartments with trees, plants, water (it is a bit humid in there) and butterflies flying everywhere or resting on some flowers. Before arriving in their apartments the butterflies travelled for a long time, they crossed the Ocean but they were babies and they can’t remember their long journey. They know only the tiny little village on the green hills and they are happy like that. It was too obvious to describe the three greenhouses and the butterflies and I have...
