Activity Book – Our actions are our future: Better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life

Let’s begin with the simple and ancient gesture of planting small seeds in the ground. Did you know that agriculture has existed for 10,000 years? The act of caring for a seed gave rise to a great revolution. Since then, men and women have slowly started changing the world in which they live. We should never forget that, in the world, each and every part has the power to change the way the system works. Some parts move slowly, and others fast, triggering other movements and bringing about new transformations. Plants, birds, and even rocks participate in their own way in this constant movement on Earth. Just like living organisms, every single detail in the world counts and every action has one or more effects.
