Statements of Mario Soares, who can see in the documentary In the Name of the Earth, with television debut on RTP 2, at 21 o’clock, at the next World Environment Day, Saturday, June 5.
On behalf of the Earth has authored and holding the journalist Rita Saldanha and production of Miguel Ferrer and gives a better understanding of the Portuguese man, the person, the politician, the route and the ideas of Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles, the Father of Ecology, which to 87 years is sure that “man of the future is rising everywhere and is one that, with memories of the past, will be able to build the future, ie joining town and country.”
Over the past 50 years, Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles has not tired of Portugal alert to the need to adopt a sustainable development model.
For that “political mission” – as he calls Nuno Portas – a sustainable future based on a real policy of Land Management, which is an urgent need to landscape, preserving biodiversity and maintaining the life cycles of natural systems that are fundamental to the Portuguese.
It’s In The Name of the Earth and sustainability of Portugal, service-minded, humanist who believes that this country faces a crisis of values by having governors “unaware of what the landscape”.
Since always inconvenient for the system, was also a monarchist lunatic. However, whenever he had the country’s environmental targets in their hands, came out in defense of the landscape, the creation of green corridors in cities, protect the vegetation and the National Ecological Agricultural and Reserves.
Humanity is at a crossroads, but according to the landscape architect, Portugal is still able to recover. For this, the country must return to have references, you must know our landscape, our roots and our emotions.
To Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles “we are all on a march.” But “as we walk we must reflect and be uneasy on the march …”
