contenuti
The 12 trends presented in The Intelligence of Nature concern the entire economic system, but first of all they apply in agriculture and the agri-food industry, which, in addition to condemning us to eat tasteless and unhealthy foods, contribute massively to global warming and to the depletion of fundamental resources such as soil and water. In fact, according to Pauli, it is precisely from the food production system that it needs to start that transformation into the 3D economy that is capable of generating value for communities and dignity for all their members, reducing inequalities and counteracting the most dangerous effects of climate change and environmental degradation.
