How is it going? Pleasure to write to you.
I would like to highlight two pieces of information which I consider quite important, one of them related to Diego Gravaglia’s excellent work. Diego is currently studying Civil Engineering in U.T.N. (spanish for National Technology University).
In the first place, I would love to tell you that from april 18th, till the 20th, in Capital Federal (Argentina), a unique business event is taking place, dedicated entirely on industries which work on behalf of sustainable development on: water, renewable energies, environment and waste… In this article, you can find the information needed to attend the event.
A lot of us start going to these kinds of events by mere curiosity, or something leads us there. Hundreds of stands with tons of information about everything, books, videos, conferences, interviews… it all serves the cause of triggering ideas.
Diego has already signed in to go to the event –he told me about it in the first place-, and he already has a target in sight: meet people, relate with them, look for information and ideas to promote his own idea, a project, a vision of change. Immersed in the world of civil constructions, Diego merged thought with two more friends, Fernando Romero and Fernando Vago, partners at university, and started the project –“GREEN AGENDA”- giving advice to take forward the construction of green roofs in any type of building. I invite you to get to know the social, economic and environmental benefits of taking advantage of the roofs in a big city through an exquisite presentation on the subject in pdf. that Diego created and he shares with us here. For those interested in this topic, and want to get in contact with them, simply write to [email protected]
Good luck my friends in this new journey.
The second piece of information I wanted to share with you, in a more serious, alarmed, or even indignated manner, comes through the critic, acid, realistic Santiago Bilinkis’ opinion. In his latest post, he informs: “This week we lived in Argentina a surreal situation. With the absurd justification of denying the entrance of highly lead concentrated inks to the country, the entrance of foreign books to the country has been compromised, in a sort of 2012 version of “Shoes YES, Books NO” from 1946.” (“Alpargatas sí, libros no” pronounced by Juan Domingo Perón as a President, who preferred clothing before education) I only have to keep on quoting Bilinkis in order to feel better with his answer to the matter: “(…) the circulation of digital goods cannot be restrained effectively by any ridiculous governmental politic! (…) thanks to the growing digitalization of the world, the battle of taking global knowledge from us is lost beforehand.”
Huge hug to all.
