The past few years we have come to realize that Human activity has a detrimental effect on the Earth’s systems (climate, ec osystems, biodiversity). Its impact can be seen not only on nature itself, but also in the food we eat, the drugs we use, even on our health. This show, without being alarmist, treats each of these co mplex topics by presenting scientific facts, in order for the audience to reflect on individual responsibility and action. We act as if our planet belongs only to us, probably without even realizing i t. Perhaps it is time to reconsider the way we live.
