Held in the Ossola Valley last Sept. 1-3, the States General of Climate Action. The convening of "There will be a good climate" was for all Italian actors involved in various capacities and forms in climate and environmental issues and actions to (re)find each other and "Gather, strengthen and support the voices of Italian climate activism." Among those who responded to the call was Italian Climate Network.
Cultured meat (or "cultured meat") is a type of meat that is produced through the methodology known as "cellular agriculture." Cellular agriculture aims to produce food, including meat, fish and dairy products, from the cultivation of stem cells. The first key difference from conventional meat production is that cultured meat does not require animal farming. In fact, the main innovation of cultured meat is that it is not strictly necessary to grow one or more animals to obtain meat, but that it is possible to grow cells to obtain only the tissues needed for food.
In recent months-as the Italian Climate Network and as European civil society-we have been trying to draw the attention of policymakers and the public to the so-called Loss&Damage, the issue of loss and damage related to climate disasters. But it is not easy, on the one hand because that of the climate emergency continues to remain in the eyes of public opinion a problem that is "too high," too distant, too big to touch the strings of individuality, of everyday life, in spite of everything. On the other, because in this context of poor (in)education we continue to be confused by the many definitions and numerous terms that are often perceived as too technical, so much so that they confuse and distance us from the problem.
Like an international fund that asks countries to come to terms with their responsibility for climate change. But how to define what is compensable, and what is not? And, most importantly, how to determine the culprits who will have to trigger a compensatory transfer? Wired journalist Antonio Piemontese tells us about it.
On 9 May 2023, the government launched an open consultation on the new National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan (NIPEC), the plan on which Italy's contribution, as a member of the European Union, under the Paris Climate Agreement is based. Italian Climate Network participated, through its Board of Directors, in the public consultation by submitting its comments on 25 May 2023.
On 1 June, the European Parliament adopted the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDD), with 366 votes in favour, 225 against and 38 abstentions. This is a historic step for the EU, which is moving ever closer to the international business and sustainability standards dictated by the UN Guiding Principles and the OECD Guidelines.
We care about our planet and we want to act for the climate!
We are a non-profit association created to tackle the climate crisis and ensure a sustainable future for Italy.
Impacts on ecosystems, societies and economic activities are an increasingly urgent problem that affects us all, without exception. For this reason we are working to ensure that the climate change becomes a priority in the public debate and occupies a central role in the national political agenda.
We are engaged on a daily basis in education, dissemination and advocacy activities, which aim to combine scientific rigor and the ability to address different audiences.
We collaborate with other associations, local groups, companies and public authorities, both at an Italian and international level, in the belief that the answer to this great challenge can only be collective.
We have been working since 2011, valuing the commitment of many people, and we will continue to do so to promote the change we need.
Help us build a better society, especially attentive to future generations!
