We don't know if there is intelligent life on other planets. But we certainly know that there is precarious life on our world... At least two billion people suffer from hunger and malnutrition. Climate changes and biofuels that increase the crisis of agricultural markets add to wars and famines. But here's the project of the World Food Summit Food security: the challenge of climate change and bioenergy with a goal: to halve the number of undernourished people. A battle for life that sees Italy in the first row. Italy with the UN against hunger in the world. We are all under the same sky.
