Saving our Planet, the forth industrial Revolution at Ecomondo 2018

Environmental protection and circular economy are key words of the current Italian cultural and political scene. The effects of climate changes, environmental disasters, collapses of territories that we live and see so devastated are indeed national emergencies on the order of the day. Nowadays storms are scourging Italy, from Trentino to North of Piemonte, from Liguria to Veneto, South Italy included, are determining victims and damages estimated in billions of euro, representing the umpteenth alarm bell, a fact less and less extraordinary.

Harvard's Symposium Will Seek New Policies and Tools to Benefit Global Slums This Fall

There are very few signs that slums will transition out of the urban landscape in the foreseeable future. Even after more than one and a half centuries of policy interventions, starting from efforts to address the effects of industrialization in Europe, slums persist in almost every geography on the planet.

Slums are not only visible in the Global South, but are reappearing in old and new manifestations in the Global North. Their persistence can be linked to a number of political and economic failures to effectively address poverty and inequality, distorted land markets, and systemic social exclusion. These failures are, in turn, rooted in the very way policymakers, global media, and intellectuals conceptualize and represent how, wh (...)
