The need for in-depth studies into glocalism are being recognised from several quarters, as increasingly complicated problems emerge in today’s world associated with glocalisation processes.

Issue 2014, 1-2: Feeding the planet. Energy for life

“Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life”. Next year Milan will host Expo 2015, which, with its planetary theme, is bidding to be the first exposition of a glocal world. While the Expo in Shanghai in 2010, “Better City, Better Life, could be considered an exposition in an inter-national mould, the theme “Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life” cannot be structured as one of competition among the participating nations, but rather must be faced in an awareness of synthesis, organicity and collaboration, on a glocal scale.

In the theme of Expo 2015, in fact, the two classical planes of glocalism – what must be done at global level and what at local level – are necessarily manifested together. In a world that is by now interconnected and increasingly densely populated, it is indispensable to adopt a glocal approach to tackle issues such as nutrition and the distribution of resources. What issue could in fact be more g-local than the safeguarding of the planet and bio-diversity, biological and cultural?

In the spotlight
Address to "Glocalism" by the Mayor of Milan. By G. Pisapia It is now little less than a year until the appointment with Expo 2015. It will be the global event that will put Milan at the centre of the international debate on the theme of the second Milanese Universal Exposition after the one held in 1906: “Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life”.
Water, to feed the planet. By R. Prodi Nothing is more important, and at the same time, more elementary, than water: it is our life. Right from our earliest school days, we are taught that our body is composed almost entirely of water, and yet we use water without reflecting on how important it is.
Nutrire il pianeta, alimentare la speranza. By F. Anelli Abstract: The long-lasting crisis has produced a new inequality: in the advanced societies, the numbers of people below the poverty threshold are on the increase and in the world one person in eight does not have enough food to have a healthy, active life; every year, deaths due to starvation are in the millions.

This new order is in continuous evolution, created by an innovative global polity that is destructured, manifold, non-uniform, and incoherent.
