In My Photos: No to the Violence of War

In My Photos: No to the Violence of War Vita 2019.05.13 Emergency has chosen to celebrate its twenty-fifth birthday with the photo exhibition "Zakhem | Wounds | Wounds. The war at home - When war comes home ", by the Neapolitan photographer Piscitelli who visited the NGO hospitals in Afghanistan in 2018 and set a goal: "Telling the bond that links the victims to the war and from there to push to reason about the inseparable link between the wounded and what struck them “   Telling the war in images, where violence is not in the actions portrayed, but in the inseparable link between victims and offensive instruments. This is the goal - achieved - by Giulio Piscitelli, a Neapolitan photographer who since 2010 has been producing photojournalistic reports on international current affairs. His photographs are the protagonists of the exhibition created by Emergency to celebrate five years of activity. "By looking after the victims, year after year, w

Climate Change: Global Sea Level Rise Could Be Bigger than Expected

Climate Change: Global Sea Level Rise Could Be Bigger than Expected BBC News 2019.05.20 Scientists believe that global sea levels could rise far more than predicted, due to accelerating melting in Greenland and Antarctica. The long-held view has been that the world's seas would rise by a maximum of just under a meter by 2100. This new study, based on expert opinions, projects that the real level may be around double that figure. This could lead to the displacement of hundreds of millions of people, the authors say. The question of sea-level rise was one of the most controversial issues raised by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), when it published its fifth assessment report in 2013. It said the continued warming of the planet, without major reductions in emissions, would see global waters rising by between 52cm and 98cm by 2100.

Benefit Concert When Music Makes the Earth Quake

Benefit Concert When Music Makes the Earth Quake HEIDENHEIMER ZEITUNG 2019.05.13 On Mother's Day, the New Chamber Choir Heidenheim and the Landesblasorchester in the CC provided a brute musical experience. All seats in the Congress Center on the Schlossberg were occupied when the Benefit Concert of the Rotary Club Heidenheim-Giengen began. On the stage stood nearly 90 young singers, who presented the audience with a lot of fun and talent, a musical bouquet for Mother's Day.  With music from Namibia, human rights activist Waris Dirie was finally invited to come on stage. Anyone who had expected a shattering lecture on female genital mutilation, the donation theme of the evening, was wrong. Naturally, she joined in and sang and danced with the choir. In a very good mood, Waris Dirie thanked all the contributors, the audience and also the Rotary Club Heidenheim-Giengen, without whose financial support a concert like this would not have been possible.

Ten million people treated for free in 18 countries around the world: this is a summary, in short, of the 25 years of Emergency's activities. The humanitarian association, founded in 1994 in Milan by the surgeon Gino Strada, on Wednesday celebrates its birthday at Casa Emergency, with an exhibition open to the public. Doctor Strada, what led to creating the show?  I met Giulio Piscitelli in Afghanistan. His images show the face of war. Casa Emergency was inaugurated in 2017, in front of the Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio ... It was many years that Emergency was looking for a home, an operational headquarter. We are very happy with this space, a former renovated school, but we can also work on the initiatives we do: films, debates, meetings, conferences. It also seems to me a good sign for the city. Emergency was born here in Milan: I and other friends had wo

Waris, with your book "Desert Flower" you have brought the topic of genital mutilation into the public consciousness that would never have been created without your own passion story.
