    Illustrations for the book "The strategy of the hummingbird - Manual for young eco-activists" (original title: La strategia de colibrì. Manuale del giovane eco-attivista) written by Alessandro Pilo in Italian. You can buy the book here: http://www.sonda.it/Catalogo/Libri/7-457/La-strategia-del-colibri/ Ale's words about the book: "The target group is late teenagers, high school and university students, but I believe more or less everybody can find something useful in it. This book analyses from an environmental point of view different aspects of our lifestyle and daily habits - the food we eat, the way we travel, dress, consume, etc - and offers some alternative and creative solutions to make it more sustainable. Moreover in the book are offered suggestions to kids (or people in general) who want to start campaigning about eco-issues and are recommended documentaries and books to get deeper into eco-knowledge. Because of the actual environmental emergencies, scarcity of water and oil, climate change and overconsumption of natural resources, each of us is expected to do something in order to make his-her lifestyle more sustainable. I hope this book will give a small-big contribution to the cause. The publisher Sonda Edizioni is specialized with environmental issues, animal rights and vegan cooking, and translated for the first time in Italy Peter Singer’s "Animal Liberation", Tom Regan’s "Free cages" and Melanie Joy’s "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows". The book can be found (or ordered) in the Italian book stores from 27th November on. " Read Less
