ITALY is experiencing its worst drought in 70 years. There is not enough water in the drying Po River to irrigate crops, and if the trend continues, it could lead to a shortage of drinking water. More than a quarter of the country is threatened by desertification.
Pollution and drying up of water sources, erosion and degradation of soils have led to the fact that more and more areas are becoming unsuitable for growing food. Extreme temperature fluctuations, shifting seasons, sudden frosts, heavy rains or prolonged droughts lead to the loss of crops in entire regions. Floods, hurricanes, and volcanic eruptions, which are rapidly succeeding one another, make these areas uninhabitable.
We are so interconnected today that it is impossible to solve global problems alone.
But together, united, we can find the only salvation for all, which will not only allow all of us to survive in the future, but also to build another world and another society. A society where Human Life will be paramount and where we will no longer allow hunger, poverty or wars - a Creative Society.
