Today I hope you don’t mind, I want to share with you info , reflections and decisions connected with my personal life.

Like most of people I have limited knowledge on the science connected to climate change (which is huge topic), but I love to learn and reflect about it. I always doubt about information I read online or in books, I allow my brain to have doubts (a bit too much) and check if what I am reading make sens in comparison to my theoretical  and empirical knowledge.

That said there should be a balance between theory and  practical, I find the Earth Day Network a very interesting platform where to find information and practical tips to reduce our footprint. I suggest you to start taking the Ecological Footprint Quiz. 

I am glad I share home with a patient person I can talk to and discuss a bit about ecology and climate change, but not all the couples are the same. Let me give an example: I don’t drive and my partner Alessandro drives an hybrid car (now, after long time with a regular car), but this is not a common mix in my country, Italy, where cars are useful, but also a status symbol. The idea to have a silent car is something that scares most Italian boys.

What I like most about the international days id the suggested actions we all can take to do our bite, read on Earth day newtork website what we can all do.

This is just to say we are already sensitive about ecology and climate change, but still have issue in living as we should do for many reasons, I want to give you a couple of examples:

If we want to change the world, we should consider how live the 70-80% of world population and how we can help solve practical problems for them, until we keep talking among us it wouldn’t work. I feel to be in the middle, not good enough but not bad. I feel I want to know and do more to improve myself and the humans impact on our planet.

Do you have solutions? Please share them with me!
