Nowadays, our world faces many problems concerning economic, political, social and cultural aspects which contribute to the environmental damages. The low economic growth followed by excessive exploitation of natural resources threatens the sustainability of local resources. Competitions among countries to exploit the natural resources also lead to conflicts which endanger the ecosystem. Moreover, the less controlled urban development and the expansion frequently marginalize the rural entities. In addition, there are fundamental problems related to human relationship with the environment that increasingly destruct our world.
