Environmental movement Extinction Rebellion explains how to counter the climate and ecological crises

David Attenborough, Pope Frances, and Al Gore. These household names might not have much in common, but they are all speaking the views of a growing proportion of ordinary people, who are becoming ever more concerned about the state of our planet.

Italian entrepreneur Matteo Belcore had, in a relatively short time, risen from obscurity to ubiquity in Australia’s night life scene. (Photo - The Eat The Beat Team.

Why it’s important to embrace our culture

As a family with an extensive Italian heritage, celebrating these cultural days is important, yet for a period of my time it wasn’t. Actually, it was the opposite. During my teenage years I was living in small town that really made me feel ashamed of my culture and my nationality.

Looking for my own private enlightenment at the Expo 2015

Confucius once said, “If you buy a man a fish you will feed him for a day, but if you teach him to fish you will feed him for a lifetime”. Ever since I heard about Expo Milano 2015, this illuminating idea of Confucius has abided with me and still influences me.
