In compliance with the distancing and the Covid 19 protocols, many students attended the Museum of Peace - MAMT to celebrate the "World Environment Day", now in its 47th edition this year.
The first was held in 1974 with the slogan "Only One Earth". Theme that has always set the tone for this anniversary, dedicated to critical awareness of the environment and its protection. The urgency, however, has increased year after year. In 1974, the overshoot day, that is, the day when we consumed the natural resources that the world is capable of regenerating in a year and we begin to "gnaw" those of the future, fell on November 27. This year, however, it will fall on July 29, two months earlier.
The students were able to see on the large video walls the message of the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres who concluded on a positive note, inviting them to look to the future rather than the past, and calling for action
President Michele Capasso gave the students exemplary books of the book "This our good earth", written with the late Sister Maria Pia Giudici and stressed the need not to regret the havoc of the past but to think about the future: protecting creation, planting trees , making our cities green, changing our eating habits and depolluting the sea, coasts and waterways.
On this occasion, President Capasso presented the UNITED STATES OF THE WORLD program and the videos THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET and CILENTO EMOZIONI SENZA TEMPO to young people
