From the lines above it is possible to guess the beauty of my native mountains, but also the challenges that you may have to face. In fact, a small mountain village like Valbruna, which experiences severe winter conditions, offers almost nil opportunities to ambitious young people, who are forced to migrate in order to pursue their dreams. Despite this, the immeasurable beauty of its mountains — together with the sense of peace, tranquillity and freedom cradling the inhabitants of the Valcanale — exerts a gentle appeal to one's native and natural place. A pull, attractive force that could be confused with gravity, if only the mountains were immensely more massive.
Hopefully by now we are agreed that certainties and probabilities are two different things. Now, let's agree, I beg you, that the opinion of a scientist is not necessarily science, itself. Only because a statement has been made by someone who works in a scientific sector, it does not make it "science". To be science, it must be based on data, it must be capable of accurate predictions, and it must have been verified in analogous circumstances. Otherwise, it is just a personal opinion.
The sustainable economy is the future of work. It can be developed in an area like this, from tourism, building houses, and environments using the wood that surrounds our territory. This paired with good management of the woods and an enhancement of all architectural and natural heritage that surrounds us.
Rather than a solution per se, I have presented a ‘shift in attitudes’ that place sustainability at the centre of business strategies, framing sustainability as a value rather than a burden, which sadly is how the majority of businesses currently view it.
The Professor at the University of Udine researches the relationship between economics and environmental impact, thus arriving at the main theme of sustainable development. Marangon is the rector's appointee for sustainability, and therefore brings the global objectives of sustainable development 2020/2030 within the university world and broader region.
People have a really one-sided view of what's happening in the world. That breeds polarization. Plus, when they want to do something, they feel hopeless. They think, “I can't. What am I going to do?” They don't know there are people making a difference, let alone connecting with the people who are driving change.
It's not my generation that will change the world, but you! We need to start sharing ideas and collaborate beyond our immediate networks of people to achieve goals together.
