Gli eventi da non perdere nel 2020

Events not to be missed in 2020

Over the last decade, the topic of environmental sustainability has been the subject of great discussions, so much so as to lead to a series of changes within our society which are now evident to everyone: new sources of energy production, reduction of emissions, increasingly healthier diets. for humans and the environment, regenerative agriculture, improvements in the recycling system, policy initiatives and regulations and of course sustainable clothing , just to name the biggest trends of the moment. However, now that we have entered 2020, a new decade begins and it will be more important than ever to keep up with these global changes while increasingly trying to improve the situation further. Here at CasaGIN we thought that one way to increase environmental awareness and encourage more people to adopt an ecological lifestyle is to promote the different environmental events planned throughout the year . Here is a list of the main events related to the environmental theme to mark in the calendar:


Veganuary (1-31 January)

Veganuary is a UK non-profit organization that encourages everyone to switch to a plant-based diet throughout January. Its mission is to promote food choices that help end animal agriculture, protect the planet and improve human health.

World Wetlands Day (2 February)

Wetlands are areas of the ecosystem submerged by water permanently or seasonally. World Wetlands Day is celebrated annually on February 2 with the aim of raising awareness of the value of wetlands to humanity and the planet.

World Water Day (22 March)

Severe drought is just one of the devastating effects of climate change. This is why on March 22nd every year we celebrate water, the element synonymous with life. A day to reflect on how water is a fundamental resource for our planet, to be safeguarded and protected.

Fashion Revolution Week (20-26 April)

Fashion Revolution Week is a week-long global event dedicated to helping consumers become aware of the real cost of fashion, its impact on people and the environment, perhaps with the aim of leading everyone to make more sustainable and ethical choices .

The International Day for Biological Diversity is held on May 22 each year with the long-term goal of reducing the loss of living things that populate the Earth.

Like every year, World Environment Day is celebrated around the world on June 5th: an international event that unites the various countries of the Earth in the effort to preserve the natural ecosystem, raising awareness among each individual to implement more careful and responsible.

World Population Day (11 July)

It is estimated that the world population will reach around 8.5 billion people by 2030, bringing with it a series of problems relating to the exploitation of increasingly limited resources. It is therefore central to reserve a primary role for demographic issues within global development plans and programs.

International Day of Indigenous Peoples (9 August)

Three decades ago, chemicals that caused ozone layer depletion were phased out in countries around the world, helping to protect vital ecosystems. This year, International Day for the Conservation of the Ozone Layer, which will be held on September 16, will celebrate more than 30 years of remarkable global efforts and cooperation in protecting the ozone layer and the climate.

World Food Day (16 October)

World Food Day on 16 October is a way to address the issue of world hunger, promote greater awareness and involve all actors in actions to help those who suffer from hunger.

World Day for Science, Peace and Development (10 November)

Thanks to the celebration of this day, on November 10th citizens in every part of the world will be able to be informed about scientific advances and acquire further knowledge about our planet and how to make our societies more sustainable.

World Soil Day (5 December)

Healthy soil is vital to human life because without it there is no sustenance. We must reverse a trend that has seen excessive exploitation of this resource and adopt effective conservation and restoration actions for this basic resource for the survival of all species.

We are part of nature and yes, we depend very much on it. So, for this year, let's set aside some time and energy in order to increase our awareness and perhaps influence those around us towards a more natural way of living, more attentive to the environment and more respectful towards of those who share this beautiful planet with us. Marking these events in the calendar and actively participating, taking actions consistent with them, can help all of us develop movements capable of bringing concrete changes to this great ecosystem that is represented by the planet and the society in which we live.
