What does this mean? ECO123 is keeping a close watch on the ecology and the economy with all sorts of stories behind the stories. For example, tomorrow, Saturday. 2020. We will all remember this year for a long time to come. The safety measures designed to protect our health against the Covid-19 pandemic are gradually being eased. After three months, what we are left with is the wreckage of an old economic system. Most planes will remain grounded for the time being. The car and aviation industries and their suppliers are promoting shorter working hours. Workers are set to be …

    Co-creating solutions at a local level

    Municipalities and local representatives can be pioneers and drivers of deep decarbonisation and profound social transformation. This is the firm belief of BEACON, or “Bridging European and Local Climate Action”. The European project seeks to promote climate action, co-operation and learning amongst municipal representatives and the dissemination of good practices – in order to implement the Paris Agreement and the targets for 2030. Financed by Germany (the European country with the highest emissions and the sixth highest worldwide), in Portugal the project involves five municipalities and is coordinated by the Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes – cE3c (Faculty …

    Edition #26 Nowadays, journalists should know that we are facing a profound crisis. This crisis can only be overcome if we properly inform our readers, writing stories that convey basic truths. We need success stories with answers — or ones that search for answers – to address the pressing questions of our times. We need well-told stories, ones that consider reality in its entirety, and present a coherent vision. That’s why we haven’t interviewed António Costa yet. Not yet. That which is abstract, we must make comprehensible. It is not enough to talk about electric cars and airplanes — we …

    Homemade Shampoo Today we are going to talk about shampoo: a vegan alternative, without chemicals or plastics. I can’t imagine how many plastic shampoo bottles I’ve thrown away over the course of my life. Whether the bottle is 250 ml or 1000 ml, the flood of plastic never seems to end. Special soap for hair washing does exist, but it’s not always easy to find – and goodness knows where it’s been imported from, or rather, how much CO2 it has generated, even without counting my journey to buy it at the shop… plus, the never-ending list of ingredients makes …
