“We have a unique and wonderful planet. With the help of us all, a better world is possible”

Andre Wehrli works in the Swiss  Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and he visits Nerja once a year to enjoy the town with his family. As an expert in sustainable development, Andre told us a lot of interesting things about taking care of the environment and the protection of nature.

 – What are the major environmental problems in the world of today?

Nowadays, there are many major ecological problems and they are often caused by the overexploitation of nature’s resources. The planet’s global warming is a really urgent problem, but also the lack of clean water, the depletion of biodiversity and natural habitats (both in amount and quality) are also very important problems.

 – Why is taking care of the environment so important?

 We have a unique planet, a unique world, and the environment is our best life insurance. It is not possible to live without the environment and natural resources. However, our planet can perfectly survive without the presence of human beings… That is the question. Leer más Sobre “We have a unique and wonderful planet.

My grandmother’s life

My grandmother didn’t have the chance to learn a job. She had to work for her parents at the farm. She wanted to travel around Switzerland and work in other places in the country, but she couldn’t, because her strenght was very important for the work at the farm, and, of course, she never dared to contradict her parents. It was a very difficult life for her and many of her desires never became true. Leer más Sobre My grandmother’s life
