Countries Lockdown - Reducing air pollution
The Lockdown may save more lives from pollution reduction than are threatened by the virus itself, said François Gemenne, director of The Hugo Observatory , which studies the interactions between environmental changes, human migration, and politics.
“Strangely enough, I think the death toll of the coronavirus at the end of the day might be positive, if you consider the deaths from atmospheric pollution,” said Gemenne, citing, for example, the 48,000 people who die annually in France because of atmospheric pollution and the more than one million in China.

"A blank space for new beginning"- Li Edelkoort, one of the world's most influential trend forecasters
This is an extract from an interview with Li Edelkoort from Dezeen. For the full interview, you can click here.
"The impact of the outbreak will force us into slowing down the pace, refusing to take planes, working from our homes, entertaining only amongst close friends or family, learning to become self-sufficient and mindful. Suddenly the fashion shows look bizarre and out of place, the travel ads that enter our computer space seem invasive and ridiculous, the thought of future projects is vague and inconclusive: will it even matter? Every new day we question each system we have known since birth, and are obliged to consider their possible demise.
For several years we have understood that in order to survive as a species and to keep the planet going we need to make draconian changes to the way we live, travel, consume and entertain. There is no way we can continue to produce as many goods and the many choices we have grown accustomed to. The debilitating mass of information about nothing at all has numbed our culture. There is a growing awareness amongst younger generations that ownership and the hoarding of clothes and cars is no longer even attractive."
As Li Edelkoort said that it is very sad for the families of the people that already gave their lives to this new illness. Hopefully, they did not die in vain as the world will strive to resurrect human dignity and survival. The pandemic is cruel. We can choose either to blanket ourselves with worry and fear. We can choose to look on the bright side of the pandemic and appreciate more what we have at this moment. Keep spreading the positive news.
And if you are reading until the end, this is a small project to share the good vibe everyday to your email from our friend. Just a minor thing is we are doing it in Vietnamese. So here to the Vietnamese friends, this is a good source to looking for positive vibe right at the moment you wake up: https://tintot.substack.com/p/tin-tt-mi-ngy-vo-hp-th-ca-bn
Thank you and Stay positive!
