The Dalai Lama visits Italy and Ecozema® will contribute to the event’s sustainability

Dalai Lama visits ItalyThe Dalai Lama, Nobel Peace Prize Winner in 1989, will be visiting Italy on 14 and 15 June, at the Modigliani Forum of Livorno, where he will hold a public conference focusing on the importance of the development of ethics and compassion, and the promotion of human values and inner qualities, also as a crisis-antidote.

This event will gather thousands of Buddhist practitioners and students coming from all over Italy and not only to listen to his words.

In order to significantly reduce the event’s environmental impact, a Sustainability Project was designed. The event organizers searched for ethically oriented partners and responsible suppliers when establishing a waste management plan. This is why Ecozema® biodegradable and compostable tableware will be used during the event.

This Sustainability Project will not be limited to these two days but will continue for the entire month of June at the Lama Rzong Khapa Institute in Pomaia (in the province of Pisa), with a dense schedule of meetings and teachings.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyasto, who lives his life by the standards of simplicity and humility, is without a doubt one of the most outstanding figures of our times, for his extraordinary love for every living being, for his ability to convey constructive messages of tolerance and peace, and for his constant effort to overcome barriers and incomprehension with dialogue and non-violence.

For a shared vision about eco-innovation: the EREP Manifesto

‹‹ We are in need of innovation: the current production and consumption processes are not sustainable. We must change them. By 2030, three billion middle-class consumers will join us Europeans in a higher quality of life. These are good news but resources, some of which are already depleted, will suffer. Nonetheless, we know how to act in order to change this tendency››.

These are the words with which the Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik, in a recent statement, stressed the need of a shared vision of eco-innovation challenges within the EU.

The European Resource Efficiency Platform (EREP) is the tool Potočnik has created, together with stakeholders from all sectors, to transition toward a resource-efficient economy and society.

Here follows the Manifesto including the guidelines for policy makers and companies that wish to undertake the European road towards eco-innovation.
