Though in the last decades there have been several improvements, air pollution still threatens the health of the European people, reducing their life quality and expectancy. Hans Bruyninckx, executive director EEA.
Our wonderful Planet deserves more. We deserve a sustainable future. We need to change our ways, now! See how:
- set your central heating 1 degree lower
- travel on public transport and ride on bycicle
- take slightly warm showers by setting the temperature from your boiler
- change your energy supplier and choose those who employ renewable sources
- switch off your lights and all the other devices that you are not using
- love this Planet, always.
At Christmas against pollution hold your breath and dive into the exhibition “Artico. Immagini da un mondo bianco.” (Arctic. Images from a white world):
- thirty works that showcase the refined vision of the talented photographer Vincent Munier. Contrasto Galleria, Milan until February, 27th (link).
- Through “Arctic” he engages in treks more and more arduous and – he admits – the journeys with the harshest conditions, inspire him most.
I step into another world. For a few moments silence is complete, almost frightful. Then I realize that the echo of my steps creaking on the snow might awaken a polar bear who had fallen asleep behind a hill just a few kilometers away… V. Munier
