¡EN ESTE DÍA MUNDIAL DEL RECICLAJE CELEBRAMOS LA MENTE ABIERTA Y EL PENSAMIENTO SUSTENTABLE!  Reciclar técnicamente es el proceso de convertir materiales de desecho en nuevos materiales y objetos, pero es mucho más, ya que cumple un rol fundamental en el mundo en que vivimos además de darle una segunda oportunidad a la gran cantidad de cosas que eliminamos día a día, principalmente nos ayuda a tener una visión sustentable de nuestras actividades al tomar conciencia del aquí y ahora de nuestro planeta, del como lo hemos devastando con la contaminación, la  indiferencia, irresponsabilidad y con actos que han hipotacado el medio ambiente y el futuro de la tierraPero las casas estan cambiando, cada día empresas (como las B CORPS), gobiernos, ONG's y personas de todo el mundo se estan comprometiendo para cambiar esta realidad con una visión de desarrollo Sustentable, llevando a la acción "Reducir, Reutilizar y Reciclar".  El Arte no se queda atras al inspirarnos con su majestuosa obra aplicando el reciclaje como eslabón clave a la hora de impactar a la sociedad, un notable ejemplo es el STREETART que de a poco a  ganado adeptos en el arte del reciclaje y de la conciencia social.

SIDDHARTHA ROY AT TEDxVIRGINIATECH

"We give scientists and engineers great technical training, but we're not as good at teaching ethical decision-making or building character. Take, for example, the environmental crisis that recently unfolded in Flint, Michigan — and the professionals there who did nothing to fix it. Siddhartha Roy helped prove that Flint's water was contaminated, and he tells a story of science in service to the public good, calling on the next generation of scientists and engineers to dedicate their work to protecting people and the planet.

OPEN THE MIND TO NEW AND DISRUPT IDEAS
On April 21, 2018, the first official World Creativity and Innovation Day (#WCID) will be celebrated. Observed six days after Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday and one day before International Mother Earth Day, #WCID is well positioned to encourage creative multidisciplinary thinking to help us achieve the sustainable future we want.Who’s ready for Coachella this year?.  A day to raise awareness of the role of creativity and innovation in problem-solving and by extension, in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. More than 80 countries joined in support of the resolution. Creativity and innovation, at both the individual and group levels, have become the true wealth of nations in the 21st century,  Culture is an essential component of sustainable development and represents a source of identity, innovation and creativity for the individual and community. At the same time, creativity and culture have a significant non-monetary value that contributes to inclusive social development, to dialogue and understanding between peoples.  No one can do everything, everyone can something. That message is traveling throughout our atmosphere, people breathing it in; they are generating new ideas, making new decisions, taking new actions and achieving new outcomes that make the world a better place and make their place in the world better too, due to your efforts.

"The Movement of March for Science"




CREATIVITY & DISRUPTION
BY MEGAN MOLTENI VIA WIRED.COM

In January 2017, what started as a subreddit thread about the new White House scrubbing all mention of climate change from its official government website became, just three months later, the single biggest pro-science demonstration in the history of humankind. On April 22, more than a million people across all seven continents took to the streets (and dirt roads and snowfields) to declare themselves, not dispassionately, for the fundamental political value of science. The idea that the rules that govern society should be based on evidence, not partisan caprice, is an assertion seemingly so noncontroversial that before last year’s inaugural March for Science, most people had never even thought about raising a latex glove-covered fist in the air to defend it. According to a (non-peer-reviewed) survey, 90 percent of people who showed up that day considered the March for Science their first science-related public demonstration. But for many, it wouldn’t be their last.
