Climate change is presenting us with greater and different challenges than ever before. In fact, the lack of rainfall and snowfall is pushing the world towards water shortages. Of course, we are not only talking about drinking water, which is used to quench our thirst, but also the water needed for energy plants and agriculture.
Some of our behaviors in fact, still linked to the old habits of abundance of our parents, are totally detrimental to the environment, as well as useless for practical purposes. Of course, there is a lack of proper environmental culture in schools in the first place, and that is where we step in.
In this little guide, we want to give you 10 quick tips on how to save water in everyday life.

It often happens, especially during adolescence, that one realizes that one is more gifted in languages than in mathematics, or vice versa. Or that one's thought processes are different from those of a friend or classmate. This aspect depends not only on personal interests, but also on the way our brains work.
In fact, the way to process information is different from person to person, but it can be grouped into some predefined categories. Some are more predisposed to creative work, others to relationships with other people, and still others can hear and understand music in a way unthinkable for others.
According to a study carried out since the 1980s by the American psychologist Howard Gardner, we have as many as nine different types of intelligence, to which the tenth would be added. These intelligences could also theoretically be linked to certain types of jobs.
Food has undoubtedly been of paramount importance in the development of our modern civilization. Food in particular made our bodies stronger and helped extend the average lifespan of early humans by many decades.
The ability to create particular foods and dishes, in short, to process food, is still valued today, and, interestingly, many of the things that are the basis of our meals go back to ideas far into the past. Bread, wine, beer, oil, cheese, so many things go back even thousands of years.
In this short article, we will take you along with us to discover the origins of our most common foods.
A surprising scientific research conducted in 2021 and published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology revealed that pigs can play video games with their snouts.
Hamlet, Omelette, Ebony and Ivory, the pigs involved in the experiment, were trained to use an arcade-style joystick to drive an on-screen cursor against walls.
The researchers stated that the pigs' understanding of associating the stick and the game "is no mean feat".
We asked the artificial intelligence to try to imagine pigs playing video games, and here is the result.
The Six Degrees of Separation Theory, which assumes that each person can be connected to any other in the world through a chain of knowledge with no more than five intermediaries, is one of the most popular and suggestive social theories ever created, and may still be valid today in the age of social networking.
It was in the mid-1960s when a Harvard professor sent a letter to an unknown farmer in Nebraska, hoping that, through a completely random network of contacts, the letter would reach its true recipient in Boston.
Today, a study co-ordinated by the Institute of Complex Systems of the National Research Council in Florence (CNR-Isc) - signed by researchers from Spain, Israel, Russia, Slovenia and Chile - has shown that connections on social networks resemble those found by Milgram in the 1960s.
Scientific research has been able, for the first time, to quantify the effects of the climate change we are witnessing in recent years on soil, city foundations and modern infrastructure.
The study was conducted by Northwestern University and published in Communications Engineering, a journal of the Nature group. The group also developed a forecasting model up to 2050, taking the US city of Chicago as an example of other modern megacities.
What emerged from this research is that the effects of climate change on the soil, especially of so-called 'subterranean heat bubbles', are serious and incisive, but could also represent an asset, if technology is able to store and reuse all the heat that propagates underground in cities.
