THE DECALOGUE OF SUSTAINABILITY
Biodiversity can be defined as the number of species living in a defined area and represents the most important resource of the ecosystems of our Planet. The destruction of the forests and habitats causes the extinction of thousands of species every year, necause of this, the loss of biodiversity is one of the greater environmental emergencies of our time. Unsustainable production and consumption models, lacking of education and consciousness of the problem caused a loss of biodiversity to which other environmental emergencies like global warming and limited availability of resources are strictly related. Recognizing these priorities, the United Nations declared 2010 “International Year of Biodiversity”.
