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!
