World Environment Day: a message from Prof. Marti Boada

“The World Environment Day is an opportunity for a serious reflection on the historic moment we are living. A moment of several emergencies, pandemic and climatic. A moment of concern, at local and global level, for the human and environmental destiny. This year, the World Environment Day, is dedicated to the biodiversity and its important role for the health of society and for its value as an indicator of the quality of the environment and human life. It is a reflection not addressed only to the experts but needed at all levels of our society.”
