No other creature on Earth explores natural resources, to its own benefit, as efficiently as humans do. Since early ages, humans have been developing effective techniques to ease their daily lives. From the discovery of fire to the invention of the wheel, including the invention of typography or the steam engine and the Industrial Revolution, humans always tried to stretch their own abilities, searching for and developing tools that could help improving their general well-being. Initially the quest was moved by the sole purpose of improving and easing human life, but soon it became, to a great extent, a quest for power and domination over other humans, animals and nature.
For the fourth consecutive year, the International Vegetarian Week was celebrated around the world, by hundreds of people in tens of countries.
World famous cartoonist, writer, performer and activist Dan Piraro has given his support to the Vegetarian Week project.
