They don’t want to surrender

They know us since a long time ago. They know the name of most of our most famous idols. They know we have jobs that allow us to have comfortable lives and valuable things that they can't have. And that we live far away. But not too far for them to not try to approach us.

The months of hunger in Angola – Natura Award

27 years of civil war in Angola have made it the longest war in Africa. This has meant that Angolans have lost their homes, their crops and ultimately, their lives. CODESPA is going to be able to continue working to change this situation. The objective is for these rural farmers to be able to access a low-cost storage system which allows them to keep their harvest for longer and therefore, guarantee that they have enough food to see out the “months of hunger”.

The last time

Do you remember the first time you saw the ocean? Do you remember the first time you met the love of your life? Do you remember your first kiss? Do you remember the birth of your first child? Do you remember the first time you travelled by plane, the first time you walked on the snow, the first time you watched a sunrise, the first time you wrote a poem?

Nobody is normal

In 2000 opened in Rome the Girasoli restaurant. Apparently, it's a pizza place as any of the hundreds that exist in the Italian capital. But this pizzeria has a feature that makes it different from all others, so it becomes unique: all its waiters are people with Down syndrome.

Live cat, dead cat

The Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger conceived in 1935 an imaginary experiment about one consequence of quantum mechanics. Schrödinger proposed a system that is formed by a closed, opaque box containing a cat; inside the box, a bottle of poison gas and a device, which contains a radioactive particle with a probability of 50 % to disintegrate at any given time, so that if the particle decays, the poison is released and the cat dies.
