A Letter from the Future. Thank you for listening to this message from future generations – those of us who will inhabit this lovely planet for many decades to come.
Our voices are usually overlooked by your generations, so we are very appreciative of your willingness to listen to our perspective. Even though we live in a century very different from yours, we too work, play, talk, eat, laugh, hope, cry, sing, learn, worship, think, and wonder. You are alive at a pivotal moment in humanity’s development. You are making some of the most important choices in human history. Your era is marked by positive and negative potentials of such newness and magnitude that you can hardly understand them. Through your public policies and daily lives, the people of your era have tremendous power to influence the future course of humanity’s story. This is why we are very pleased that you care so deeply about the well-being of future generations. Teaching and Learning for a Sustainable Future.

In Thailandia, la foresta naturale della provincia di Phitsanulok, fa parte del progetto di riforestazione aerea (seed bombing) deciso dal governo per il rimboschimento della vegetazione entro il 2017.
Purtroppo negli ultimi vent'anni, la maggiore parte delle foreste dell'area del Grande Mekong - fiume che si estende tra Cina, Birmania, Cambogia, Laos, Thailandia e Vietnam - si sono ridotte drasticamente di quasi la metà. Questo situazione è dovuta al devastante impatto umano sull'ambiente, causato dallo sfruttamento delle attività agricole, disboscamento, cambiamento climatico, aumento della popolazione. Proprio per questo la Thailandia nel 2013 ha deciso di intervenire drasticamente con un piano quinquennale di rimboschimento delle zone più martoriate tramite via aerea con bombe di semi.

It is one of several ambitious targets to be announced. Britain’s first climate assembly agrees plan for council to tackle crisis. Britain’s first climate assembly has agreed on 17 proposals for action to tackle the climate crisis, including installing solar panels on all available roofs and cutting fossil fuels out of local government developments.
The assembly, convened by Camden council in north London, brought together more than 50 residents and a team of climate experts to develop proposals that could be taken up by the council to reduce carbon emissions and increase sustainability. The proposals focused on housing, transport and green space, and included a community energy scheme to remove fossil fuels from home heating, widespread cycle lanes and car-free zones, and programmes to ensure that all new homes in Camden are built carbon-neutral. The group also recommended that community input on the crisis become permanent, calling for a climate emergency group made up of experts and residents to be set up to oversee the shift to eco-friendly initiatives. Their concern was echoed by many members of the assembly. Algae bio-curtains: Architects' radical solution to capture carbon.
