In a period when the ecological question seems urgent and pressing to the point of seeing the awakening of an increasingly generalized awareness, is the ecological fight "sacred"? Should we germinate the idea in a concrete and profound way, through an evolutionary and educational debate, or do we need a forceful passage and above all what actions ecology requires; urgent action or on the contrary a longer-term strategy and providing for a new model of society in depth. Should ecology be a dressing, an urgent action that tries to repair, or the dawn of a real "new world", which proposes general changes, encourages the development of new responsible technologies and leads progress to the service of new "green" innovations.
