Because of where I live I have found it difficult to reduce my carbon footprint, transport. I live about 20 km away from the school and more than 20 km from almost every other place I need to be in order to go out with my friends or doing things that I need.
In the case of technology, the computer is almost essential in today’s society. Mobile phones are becoming always popular of the home phone based on the fact that they can found people when we need them. I think it would be very difficult to give up the phone.

The culture of organic food is to be carried out because it is very beneficial to human life even if the costs are quite high. There should be agricultural policies that prevent the use of certain pesticides and harmful treatments to humans not only to animals.
It seems to me like having the latest technology is usually not a need. I don’t really see a huge difference between the newest version of the Iphone and the last generation. I think that it’s fine to upgrade every few generations when it gets to the point that what you have is completely unusable compared to new things.
hello! My name is Eleanora, i’ve 17 years old and I live in the north of Italy. World hunger is a serious problem, many people in the past have moved to solve it but the success rate was very low because people do not have the food to be able to survive are many. The difference between one and the other part of the world is really great because in underdeveloped countries or continents, the percentage of daily food is very low while in developed countries such as Europe and the food is really this cause, in some cases, even the problem of excess food, thus obesity.
Hi, my name is Zoran, i’m 18 and i’m from the north of Italy, this is my carbon footprint:
You: Your Region:
Transportation: 419 kg 1948 kg
Home: 6455 kg 1913 kg
Food: 4639 kg 3002 kg
Purchases: 207 kg 1318 kg
the carbon footprint that I leave at home is very high because in my country the winter is very cold and i use a lot of wood.
The problem of food is very common in underdeveloped countries with small but especially in developed countries the problem is the amount of food that is thrown away, but also the quality of food is important. In my country, the quality of food is great because everyone grows fruit and vegetables without treatment. I grow fruit and vegetables without treatments and genuine mainly because the products are not imported and do not make me thousands of kilometers.For the quality of food is important at times we are not aware of eating and shoddy products by paying a high price.

I think it is going to be the future in the building’s field. I would like to know what do you think about this topic.
Hi! My name is Mattia.
The technology is growing, but as long as our planet will be able to bear it? I think we should use technology for those jobs where it is needed, for example in medicine.
Other uses should be more moderate to not waste much of our resources for unnecessary reasons.
Hello everyone. My name is Greta and I am Italian. I think by now we all have at least one phone and many other technological objects such as video games, computers…. In my opinion they are’nt necessary, but they are becoming affected. We should learn to think more about what we really need not always what we want at all costs. It is also true that today the mobile phone is a need because it is easier to keep in touch with the people and also the presence of the internet on the phone is a good thing because it gives you the opportunity to be connected with the world at any time of the day. What I mean is that we don’t keep a cell phone and change it only when it breaks but now we change it according to the new trend and fashion.
