Padua O2 project: updates from Padua’s urban forests

We say it all the time: planting a tree and protecting existing forests are two key actions to solve the climate crisis and mitigate the effects of pollution that we ourselves are creating and exacerbating. But changing our consumption habits is equally important, a small revolution that runs hand in hand with all the other actions to support the forests and trees that allow us to survive.

Yet, there is something that should unite us all: the commitment to protect the Earth that welcomes us, forests, ecosystems and habitats. For us at WOWnature every day is like Earth Day: April 22 is one more opportunity to remind ourselves that we must take care and become responsible for the forests of the planet.

International Women’s Day 2022: give a tree in Burkina Faso

March 8, 2022 is International Women's Day and is celebrated all over the world. In fact, the correct name would be "International Women's Rights Day": this is to remember both the social, economic and political achievements, as well as discrimination and violence to which women have been and are still subject in all parts of the world. We at WOWnature have a project in Burkina Faso that aims to give life to a process of women's empowerment: because the woman, in Burkina Faso, is the fundamental pillar of Burkinabé society.

What about trees on Valentine’s Day, what do they do?

Recent studies have shown that trees compete, help each other, communicate and, in their own way, love each other! But to love each other you have to meet, hang out, go out to dinner, spend time together, in short: you have to know each other. We intercepted a few trees on Treender - yes, it's just like us humans but for trees and they were really, really tender.

How much does digital pollute? The Carbon Thumbprint and digital emissions

Digital transformation has many advantages that also generate positive effects in the fight against climate change: working remotely, for example, reduces travel and thus CO₂ emissions. But the use of digital devices causes CO₂ emissions much more than we think; these "digital emissions" are called Digital Carbon Footprint or, in some cases, also Digital Carbon Thumbprint. The problem is that we are still not very aware of them.
