Cominciamo bene!
Ho scelto un titolo dal doppio significato. Esso vuole essere sia un'esortazione a fare bene essendo questo il primo post del mio blog, sia una descrizione dell'inizio del 2014. Voglio quindi ringraziare chi leggerà queste mie prime parole e iniziare subito...

What creates a storm surge? BBC weather presenter Matt Taylor explains: http://bbc.in/1aCP2Cu

England's east coast is preparing for the worst tidal surge in 60 years, as large parts of the UK are battered by a severe storm that has left two people dead: http://bbc.in/1cZniuP

[JH] "Economic losses are rising - from $50 billion each year in the 1980s to just under $200 billion each year in the last decade and about three quarters of those losses are a result of extreme weather," said Rachel Kyte, World Bank Vice President for Sustainable Development.

"While you cannot connect any single weather event to climate change, scientists have warned that extreme weather events will increase in intensity if climate change is left unchecked."
Global economic losses caused by extreme weather events have risen to nearly $200 billion a year over the last decade and look set to increase further as climate change worsens, a report by the World Bank shows

An amazing data visualization captures the latest climate science in just 3 minutes and 336 words. What do you think - would it help if this short video were shown in schools, factories, offices and government agencies around the world? If so, SHARE and help make it happen

Story
Introduction
I am an environmental and sustainability scientist.
 
I graduated with a BSc in environmental sciences from Ca' Foscari University of Venice (Italy). I am now gradutaing with the prestigious Joint International MSc in Sustainable Development from Ca' Foscari University of Venice and Karl Franzen University of Graz (Austria).

I also spent six months in Iceland in 2009, during my ERASMUS experience. During my stay I studied at University of Iceland and I had the chance to grow a strong passion for sustainbility sciences.

I have a deep interest for urban sustainability and my goal is to find a job within this area. More than half of the world's population lives in towns and cities and they are the place where almost all human activities take place. Therefore we need to drastically reduce the impact of these areas and make them efficient and ideal habitats for human life.

I especially focus on the sustainable use of urban land. The redevelopment and reuse of brownfield sites instead of greenfields can lead to environmental and social benefits as well as new economic opportunities in the long run.

I am also concerned about the impacts of the tourism industry on the environment and the society. As the largest industry in the world it has the potential to act both as a postive and negative force, ergo, we cannot ignore or underestimate its effects.

Other topics of interest are education for sustainable development and stakeholder engagement processes
