Oceans and seas, rivers and lakes, rice paddies and canals – the world's waters provide not only fish, but also other foods that help mankind face the complex and critical challenges of nutrition, public health, climate change, resilience, gender equity, social inclusion and sustainable growth across the globe.
In 2022, month after month, Love Planet Earth calendar offers the possibility to take a trip around the world and observe, through photographs and satellite images, the work of artisanal fishermen, fisheries and fish workers.
Such activities, while conducted on a small scale, can contribute to the well-being of Man, creating healthy food systems and helping to eradicate poverty through the responsible and sustainable use of fishing and aquaculture resources.
The scenic satellite images produced by e-GEOS were captured by the radar eyes of Italy’s first and second generation COSMO-SkyMed satellites and by the constellations of the world's leading Earth observation operators.
These are extraordinary, unexplored views of our planet, from the Polynesian and Caribbean islands to Hawaii, the rice paddies of China, the aquaculture centres of Zambia and Tunisia, the world’s great rivers, such as the Mekong and the Amazon, the small ports of Mauritania and Yemen, and through to the Chilean coasts.
A real journey around the globe to describe the daily challenge faced by peoples and cultures in an attempt to reconcile sustainability and growth through traditional and natural food production practices.
Have a good trip!
