The interaction between humans and their habitat, like any living being, generates changes. Their actions, unlike other species, are able to affect the global balance.

Since the Industrial Revolution there were great migrations from the countryside to the cities. The process was causing permanent increase in urban areas and the consequent need to satisfy their needs.

This generated excessive consumption of energy resources and environmental changes causing considerable pollution levels that threaten the environmental balance, especially since the second half of the twentieth century.

The current model of population distribution and use of polluter energy further aggravate the situation. The awareness of the environmental emergency is an urgent need.
