June 5 is World Environment Day: we have chosen this date to contribute to the dissemination of voices, messages and information that can make us all more aware of the solutions to save it, and to save us, these solutions already exist if we have the conscience and the responsibility to make them ours.

Change must first of all be thought through and, if every designer included ecological materials and technologies that do not harm the ecosystem in their projects, in a few years our impact on the environment would be drastically lightened.
If consumers were also made more aware, companies would find themselves forced to use precisely those eco-sustainable materials required by the market in their production processes.
Planning, Architecture and Design create our choices and also our way of looking at the world: if we carry out these activities in an increasingly sustainable way, we will truly be able to preserve the planet for the generations to come; if we transfer greater sensitivity to consumers, we will have the strength of market demand from below which, combined with design thinking from above, will impart the necessary strength to bring about real change in the world.
TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
One action, multiplied for each of us, can make the difference: prescribe only ecological, sustainable products; producers will have to offer only clean products.
Together we can make a world of difference. The next generations will thank us.
Since its foundation, in 1984, OIKOS ecological paint has chosen to pursue with awareness and foresight an entirely sustainable production in respect of the environment and people's health.

It does so by bringing its own example but, above all, by giving the floor to important exponents of Architecture, Design, Economy for a moment of discussion and sharing on the theme of conscious design.
