🇺🇸Our #AgrecolTrees project is not only an ecological business. It is also a place for sharing authentic environmental stories.
This is the story of Nelly, a leader of the “Cercado” farming community, a true land Guardian and climate crisis fighter.

“I used to grow flowers in the Tunari Park and sell them at the city markets. I would fumigate my fields with insecticides and fungicides and contaminate the Park, which represents the lungs and water reserve of Cochabamba […]. After I fell, my health and the health of my family and my children became my first and uttermost concern [].
Receiving a tree as a gift is a blessing. Never in our life has somebody gifted us a fruit tree. You plant it, and you will see and collect its fruits in two or three years. And you are adding oxygen to the local atmosphere.”
🇺🇸 Joining the Voices for Climate Action program allows us to empower both the #GreenTalks and the #AgrecolTree projects.
The #GreenTalks became a pool of ideas to discuss among experts the most stainable way to meet some of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The first dialog section picked up numerous reflections about the gaps in the COP 26.
The second dialog session drew a roadmap for the next COP 27 emphasizing inclusion and equality between generations and between the north and the south of the world. Also, the role of climate accountability in the green transition for all the countries and how creating green jobs would help young people in the Global South.
🇺🇸 The voluntary carbon market (“VCM”) offers compensation for CO₂ emissions. To work properly it needs to be effective and transparent. How is transparency demonstrated?

An interview with Emma van de Ven, Strategy Lead at ACORN (Rabobank), explained how the VCM works.
🇮🇹 Una piccola-grande novità
in data 17/03/2022 tutto il GreenMarked Team si è ritrovato ed è stata fondata un'Associazione di Promozione Sociale: Econtrovertia APS.
Un nome curioso che rispecchia una visione adatta a questi tempi, di cui crediamo che il confronto critico e il contraddittorio possano essere mezzi idonei per trovare equilibrio e coerenza all'interno delle attività umane per il benessere e lo sviluppo tanto sociale quanto ambientale.

Tutti i progetti portati avanti sotto l'ala di GreenMarked, come #AgrecolTrees e i #GreenTalks, e sotto al @socialmediadetox, hanno quindi trovato la loro collocazione sotto l'appena nata Econtrovertia APS e continueranno ad essere portati avanti, ora anche con un risvolto di ufficialità.
#AgrecolTree is stories of life . The last time we talked to Nelly, today we chatted with Christian and Dora, two University students who chose our business partner PROBIOMA-PROBIOTEC for their internship.
"[...] I wanted to learn about agroecology and the ecological management of organic crops", said Cristian, while Dora "will analyze the impact of agroecological management on pests and diseases severity in order to promote agroecology as a mean to optimize potato farming".
Two engaging stories about the role of agroecology in promoting sustainable development among the young generations.
🇺🇸 Earth overshoot day 2022
On Sunday, May 15th, Italy passed the overshoot day, which is the day Italy consumed the total amount of resources it would have had for a whole year. It means that since two days ago, Italians are in debt with their future generations.
This happened two days earlier than in 2021, thus confirming the past trend.
Is that a good news? Absolutely not.
Right now Italy needs more than one Earth to fulfil the resources demand of its people.
Are there worse countries than Italy? Of course, but that cannot be an excuse to consume precious resources as much as they want. The roads towards sustainability needs to be signed once again.

🇺🇸 The subtle balance between humans and nature needs to be monitored constantly. Too many times, it is said about tragic encounters with wildlife in nature and even in the cities.
In Trentino, wolves and bears are coming back to the forest. Farmers are worried about the damages they will cause.
In Rome, citizens were hostages of wild boars even before the Swine fever appeared, and recently it arose the Monkey smallpox, causing concerns.
It is clear that human-animal coexistence is an issue that needs rapid action!
We decided to promote our #AgrecolTrees also in the Bolivian market! Our hope is to attract Bolivian donors and make them aware of the beautiful agroecological communities of their country.
That's why we are also looking for an environmental business and sales expert. Find the #call and the application procedure here!
The world population keeps growing more and more, and most of it is concentrated in cities, which will become less and less sustainable hubs. It is because of these needs that vertical farming was born. Also, it contributes to numerous other environmental emergencies and critical issues, such as water and soil contamination and overconsumption.
"Vertical Farming: A Future-proof Winning Strategy" reports the details of this non-conventional agriculture .

Summer is time for vacations. How will you travel this year?
Before COVID-19, cheap flights allowed everyone to discover the world without spending excessive money. This was the sign of an unsustainable lifestyle. Now that many countries are slowly readapting to a post-COVID era, did people’s travelling habits change?
Can you guess what is happening here?
Someone seems to be a little angry. Is that just a too-expensive bill, or is there something behind it?
If you want to find out the answer, do not miss the release of "Lights Out" on Friday!
The energy crisis is putting tremendous pressure on Europe’s economy and fossil fuel lobbies are sabotaging the EU’s energy transition plans. The Eco-Team is sent onto another mission to liberate a hijacked green energy station.

🇮🇹 Perché proprio il Social Media Detox?
Per rispondere vogliamo usare le parole di Monica.

La scorsa settimana ho vissuto il mio secondo Mountain Social Media Detox […]. I giorni sono stati intensi e sono volati. Vivere in una comunità di persone che non utilizzano filtri per comunicare è un’occasione di riflessione unica. Riscoprire il legame con la terra che ci dà la vita, assume un’importanza particolare in questo delicato momento sociale in cui tutti (noi giovani in particolare) siamo più sensibili ai temi riguardanti la cura del nostro pianeta […].
Per me è stato sano staccare la spina per un po’. Mi son fermata a riflettere in più momenti, su tante questioni […]. E mi sono anche molto divertita!
*L’augurio per me e per i miei compagni di viaggio è quello di impegnarsi a portare un* pezzettino di Detox nel quotidiano, oltre alla promessa di ritrovars
i!”

Che altro dire: vi aspettiamo a il 27-28 agosto!
The EU argued that the use of biomass for energy purposes can cause too much pressure on local ecosystems. It can be true for many Europe forests, but it seems to be slightly different for the Eastern Alps.
Find out here the state of the art for Trentino and Veneto forests!
In the era of the global climate crisis, it sounds not surprising low food safety for most countries. However, in the last 3 years, with COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine, the risk of global famine has raised all over the globe . How has the global food system responded to this relentless series of shots?
