There was also talk of new technologies and in particular of geo-engineering, such as alternative solutions to excessive production of CO2, reduction of consumption, food waste and de-carbonization of economies and marine pollution from plastics.
President Capasso, in one of the meetings, recalled what Pope Francis said - always attentive to the issue of respect for the common House, to which he dedicated the Encyclical "Laudato sì" - a few days ago, receiving the participants of the Conference at the Vatican on "Religions and sustainable development": on this occasion the Pope indicated the need for an "ecological conversion" of the present world.
"Plastic Free Oceans", out of plastic from our seas: with this motto the WWF has launched an international mobilization to accelerate the ban on single-use plastic products in Europe and Italy.
The "Fondazione Mediterraneo" and the environmental associations of the "Federazione Anna Lindh Italia Onlus " have underlined how the goal for this Assembly in Nairobi is to have a New Deal that sees all environmental issues treated, from climate to biodiversity, to overfishing of resources in a coordinated and constructive manner and no longer fragmented, as has been the case to date.
According to the latest WWF report, around 100 million tons of plastic are dispersed throughout the world every year and around 9 million tons are annually ending up in our oceans.
"This is no longer tolerable - said President Capasso - we are destroying the land" and recalled the demonstrations scheduled for March 15 in the world, adhering to the stimulus of the young Swedish Greta, to face the climate changes that are destroying our future.
