Does it seem absurd to you that you can buy forests, seas or glaciers? Unfortunately it is not such a strange thing. Everything today can become a goods. Just think of natural elements as resources to grab and you’re done. We can extract them, bottle them, cut them, transform them, refine them and pollute them. The race is for those who get there first, it doesn’t matter if you have to do some trips or chase those who live nearby, because those who own them make a lot of money. If instead we treated water, air, earth and energy as common goods we could use them and take care of them all together, without forgetting who will come after us. Are we able to protect them, enhance them and use them without waste, with sobriety and respect?
The earth is too tight! is an interactive educational installation dedicated to the theme of the unequal exploitation of natural resources. A journey to the roots of the elements, halfway between an educational path and a real exhibition to be discovered step by step.
The course, aimed at primary and secondary school students, takes place entirely at Mani Tese’s office, in Piazza Gambara 7/9 in Milan and has an indicative duration of 3 hours.
