What does sustainable work and research mean to you? (not only in the ecological context)
For me, sustainable work and research imply the production of goods, offering services and imparting knowledge by the corresponding industry, business or university, in a responsible manner using their own capacities and management without a risk for their employees and neighborhood or otherwise involved persons and environment, now and in the future. This concept includes the welfare of the people related to the complete production process, namely workers, customers and community and regeneration of the ecological balance, if necessary.
In your opinion, what need to be done to make the world more peaceful?
I think that it is necessary to promote more projects to achieve equity in the world, equity in the access to basic requirements and resources of live, knowledge and opportunities. For me it is also very important to intensify our sense of respect, tolerance and appreciation with regard to people and peoples. This can make our daily life more peaceful.
How do you plan to share the results of the forum in a lasting way?
I will share the results of the forum with my colleagues and students of the University of Concepción by presentations and by conversations or meetings in our Social Medias (facebook, Instagram and twitter).
Which animal would you consider the better human?
The elephant. Elephants are very social animals, protectors of the individuals in the group and careful with the vulnerable members of the herd. They use only the resources necessary for their survival.
