Nodo italiano della rete internazionale di Transizione

Città di transizione Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera. Le città di transizione (Transition Towns in inglese) rappresentano un movimento fondato in Irlanda a Kinsale e in Inghilterra a Totnes dall'ambientalista Rob Hopkins negli anni 2005 e 2006. L'obiettivo del progetto è di preparare le comunità ad affrontare la doppia sfida costituita dal sommarsi del riscaldamento globale e del picco del petrolio.[1] Il movimento è attualmente in rapida crescita e conta centinaia di comunità affiliate in diversi paesi.[2] Storia[modifica | modifica sorgente] Il concetto di transizione matura dal lavoro fatto da Rob Hopkins (esperto di permacultura) assieme agli studenti del Kinsale Further Education College, culminato in un saggio dal titolo Energy Descent Action Plan. L'idea è stata poi riformulata ed espansa nel settembre 2006 per la città nativa di Hopkins, Totnes, dove egli oggi vive.

Murray Hallam's Practical Aquaponics. Aquaponics from a practical perspective. Programmi e bandi. 2014/2020 The other side of the peak: Italy's collapse of oil and gas consumption Italy' peak oil has arrived: we are back to 1967 in terms of oil consumption. All the data in this post are from BP statistical review up to 2012, updated to 2013 from various sources. Sometimes, peak oil looks like an intellectual game that people keep playing by arguing whether it has arrived or not. But the point with oil is not how much of it is produced, somewhere, but how much you can afford to use. So, why that? If you like to plot prices versus production, here are the results: In short, the Italian economy can afford to grow its oil consumption when oil costs less than about 20 dollars per barrel (in today's dollars), it remains stable as long as oil is at less than ca. 40 dollars per barrel and it collapses when oil prices go above that level. I am sure that now you are wondering about how's life in Italy with one third of oil consumption gone. We see that the transportation system managed to cope - more or less - with the reduced oil supply until about 2008-2010.

Strategy Consultation Here's our draft strategy - what do you think? Transition Network has been going through its own change process recently. We've reviewed and made changes to our staff structure and, over the last eight months, we've been asking ourselves lots of questions about the purpose and direction of our organisation. So here is the result of our enquiry - a draft strategy which describes our vision and purpose and the way we work and sets out our priorities for the next three years. The Transition Board will review and agree the strategy at the end of this month taking account of comments received by 26 February. You may want to respond to the whole document or there may be one section or sentence that particularly interests. The first part of the form will go directly to the Transition Network team.

The Age of Vertical Farming Is Officially Upon Us Farming Evolution The world population is currently ballooning, and the problem is only expected to get worse as the decades go by. With the world population expected to be 11 billion by 2100, how are we going to feed more of these hungry mouths? Part of the answer will definitely be changing the way we grow our food. Vertical farming doesn’t promise to radically change the way we farm, only make it more efficient, productive, and take up less space. Those plants are fed with a hydroponic system that delivers water laced with special minerals and nutrients. The whole system can turn a 50 square meter space (540 square feet) into 500 square meters of usable farm space. Growing Trend But Urban Crops is not alone in this farming revolution. The biggest facility right now is a 14,164 square meter (3.5 acre) facility in Newark, New Jersey, run by Aerofarms. A Swedish project wants to top even that.
