10 Sustainability Let's start!

11 What is Sustainability? 1987: Our Common Future (Brundtland report) tells us for the first time about sustainable development 2012: Heart Summit: a green sustainable economy Aspects of environmental sustainability: The use of natural resources The emission of waste products into the environment Limitating the natural resources of the planet Habits, behaviour and cultural aspects Development that satisfies our present needs without putting at risk the capacity of future generations to satisfy their own needs

12 What is Sustainability? Inter-generational Sustainability Use responsable of resources Preservation of ecosystems and biodiversity Keeping of natural balances Role of science and technology. Intra-generational Sustainability Access to resourses guaranteed to all people. Equitable distribution of wealth Responsability of treating of wastes and slags. Non-violent management in conflicts.

13 Sustainability: a definition There isn't a definition of Sustainability accepted all over the world. Sustainability can be read as a body of knowledge, behaviours and actions which- taken individually or collectively- allow humanity to live indefinitely in harmony with natural systems that host.

14 One World, many paths to Sustainability Economy Indicators of Sustainability Natural resources Behaviours, Culture, Lifestyles Energy production Sustainability

20 An activity about natural resources!!!

21 How much water??? If all the water on the planet was contained in this acquarium which holds 100 litres… …what would the volume of natural water corrispond to? …how much natural water is available? …and how much drinking water?

22 How much water??? If all the water on the planet was contained in this acquarium which holds 100 litres… Natural water: 3 litres Available natural water: 0.5 litres Drinking water: 0,003 litres

23 Sustainable development - Nachhaltigkeit How to learn and how to teach it? There aren't enough new technologies or political measures to change the minds of the people. It needs a decade of education towards sustainable development. Wie lernt und wie lehrt man das? Es ist nicht genug neue Technologien oder politische Massnahmen zu treffen um die Mentalität der Leute zu ändern. Man braucht ein Jahrzehnt um die Leute der nachhaltigen Entwicklung zu bilden.

24 Sustainable development- Nachhaltigkeit Spreading of sustainable culture, for example, in Italy and other countries, from '70s. Verbreitung von dem Begriff der Nachhaltigkeit, zum Beispiel in Deutschland schon in den '70er Jahren. At school Architecture Experiences with nature for children Education about Nuclear energy Thinking of Green economy In der Schule Kern der Bildung In der Architektur Grünes denken Erfahrungen schon mit den kleinen Kindern in der Natur

25 Nuclear energy - Kernkraft Advantages Less CO 2 - Emission environmentally friendly Decreased demand for oil the price of oil remains constant Much energy is produced Vorteile Wenig CO 2 - Emission Umweltfreunlich. Entlastung des Ol-Nachfrage Olpreis bleibt konstant Hohere Produktion der Energie

26 Nuclear energy- Kernkraft Disadvantages Radioactivity is dangerous There aren't any places in the world for all the radioactive waste. The danger of nuclear energy stations being attacked by terrorists. They cost a lot of money. If any accident happens then it is a disaster.For example Cernobyl. Nachteile Radioaktiv und gefärlich. Keine Platz fur die Abfall auf den ganzen Welt. Kein Schutz gegen Terrorismus Neuen Bauen sehr teuer. Wenn Unfall = Katastrofe Tschernobyl

27 Ecological Footprint An indicator of Sustainability

28 Ecological Footprint An indicator of Sustainability The Ecological Footprint is a measure of human demand on the Earth's ecosystems. It compares human demand with planet Earth's ecological capacity to regenerate. It represents the amount of biologically productive land and sea area needed to regenerate the resources a human population consumes and to absorb and render harmless the corresponding waste. Source: Wikipedia

29 Biocapacity refers to the capacity of a given biologically productive area to generate an on-going supply of renewable resources and to absorb its spillover wastes. Unsustainability occurs if the areas ecological footprint exceeds its biocapacity. Human activities and Biocapacity

30 Global ecological footprint Source: WWF, Living Planet Report 2008 – data related to year 2005

31 What about us?

32 Our journey emissions Calculation of emissions due to our international journey from Italy to Finland We calculate emissions of: Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) Nitrogen oxides (NOx) Particulate Data are calculated for each traveler Calculation tool: www.travelfootprint.org

33 Our journey Milan – Oulu km: 2565.5 Milan – Riga km: 1637.7 Riga - Turku km: 411.7 Turku – Oulu km: 516.1

34 Emissions: Milan - Riga CO 2 : 387.7 kg NOx + PM: 527.5 g

35 Emissions: Riga - Turku CO 2 : 97.5 kg NOx + PM: 132.6 g

36 Emissions: Turku - Oulu CO 2 : 122.2 kg NOx + PM: 166.2 g

37 Our journey emissions (per-capita) 1652.61214.8Total 826.3607.4MilanOulu 826.3607.4OuluMilan NOx+PM (g)CO 2 (Kg) Emissions of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and particulates

38 Our journey emissions Italians (7 persons) are responsible for these total emissions: CO 2 : 8.5 tons NOx + PM: 11.5 kg

39 Grosses Resultate Ersparnisse Veränderungen Fangen klein an! Ein einzelner Fels ist wie ein Tropfen auf heiβem Stein. Bitte! Mache etwas mit! Was soll ich erwarten, wenn ich etwas schlechtes mach? Nicht Gutes! Mutter Natur. Um einer Tisch zu bauen braucht man einen Baum. Um ein Buch zu drucken braucht man einen Baum? NEIN nicht mal ein Blett Benutze Altpapier!... Do I consume wisely???

40 Einen Baumfällen als ein Biβchen Leben töten Mache mit einem Baum nichts, was er nicht auch mit dir machen soll. Besser haute wieder verwenden als morgen nichts haben! Do I consume wisely???

41 Save water... shower with a friend! We owe a lot to Thomas Edison - if it wasn't for him, we'd be watching television by candlelight! Do I consume wisely??? Modern technology owes ecology an apology!

42 Il ny a pas de petits gestes si nous sommes 60 millions à les faire Do I consume wisely??? Si tout le monde sy met on aura moins de déchets
