With three speakers, the Meta Tucumán Responsible Forum invited us to reflect on the changes that need to be carried out together to live in a healthier world and society.

After 10 in the morning, the second panel table of the first Responsible Forum in Tucumán, organized by the Meta Tucumán association, began, where good environmental practices took center stage, with the aim of building ideas and generating positive collective habits.

In a room full and attentive to the dissemination of these practices, composting, urban waste recovery and sustainable companies were discussed, in the voices of Juan Terán, Sofia Ferrari and Coco Nizwith the moderation of the director of the León Foundation, Diego Aguilar.

A question that questions each one

The contribution of the sustainability and environment advisor, Terán, began with an invitation to close your eyes, inhale and exhale to think or become aware of the here and now. A deep thought to talk about a deeper topic, the possibility of changing the world through our actions.

“When we become convinced that our actions can modify what happens, we begin to share on networks, to tell neighbors, to take real action with what has to happen,” he indicated.

“It has to happen that we stop throwing away $390,000 for each ton, but it also has to happen that we stop seeing things as money and see that if we take everything we have, what is in our house and put it together in a bag, “It’s going to be called trash,” Terán explained later.

“50% of that garbage can be transformed, and of that other half you have left, 25% can be recovered. Furthermore, there are another 15%, 20% or 30% that cannot be valued in any way today in Argentina, but can be valued in other countries in the form of energy,” he asserted.

And he invited education in composting, as a first step towards better environmental practices. “Of each of our garbage bags, half can be regenerated into life. In our house we can create life again,” she remarked.

Action and attitude

Sofía Ferrari spoke on behalf of the sustainable business cluster and said that what motivated her to join was finding joint solutions.

“With Scania, Citrusvil, Argenti Lemon, TGL and Retinol we are neighbors, and we get together to think about the problems we have in common to find solutions. The first thing that came up is the garbage,” he recalled.

“Then we started to think and understand what are the good practices that we have from the company inside. Policies, procedures, instructions, but the most important thing is that there was a common decision, a definition. It is true, there are processes and there are times, but you also have to have an attitude and decision to take action,” highlighted the businesswoman.

“It is true that there is a lot of legislation and little action. We have to sit down, put together an agenda and say, well, what’s wrong with our waste? Do we separate the origin? Do we compost? And start acting,” she said.

What world are we going to live in?

Ricardo Coco Niz was a cardboard cutter, until one day, while living on the street with his children, he felt touched by God, he turned his life around and founded a cooperative that recovers waste and today employs 30 families.

During his presentation his first question was: what garbage are we talking about? Human or consumer? “You have to interpret what type of interest the human being has. If it is in his community, his common home or the planet,” he expressed.

And along those lines, he argued: “What house do we want to change? The one that I go to sleep or the one that I live and must sustain for my next generations? What interest do you have in leaving a friendly, drinkable, sustainable, sustainable life?”

“That’s why today with my cooperative I’m looking to be hired to provide a training and collection service, although we also hold assemblies to question why we don’t produce what we need to live,” he commented.

“Thus, among us we agree on the management network that we have to adopt, so that the corresponding profitability occurs to meet the needs of the entire planet. And here I come to ask the Tucumán community, how do you want to live? What are the projects that are going to support you with their taxes that don’t work? And so we can redirect, investigate, and adopt projects that lead us to achieve the objectives we need,” he concluded.

final wish

The last proposal was to leave a message from Terán, Ferrari and Niz, so that the communities could reflect and summarize the importance of taking action.

“We are very used to complaining, criticizing, judging and there is a lot of missing to accompany, do and act. We have to put our body to everything that is happening to us. We already have legislation in force. What prevents us from acting on what subjects us to suffering, to need? The power is in the human decision,” they said. (JOURNALIST PRODUCTION BY ARIANE ARMAS)
