Quality of life, natural and man-made environments, physical, social and mental well-being are currently undermined by all sorts of hazards and injuries; political, economical, social and cultural disarray normalises atrocious behaviours and violence throughout the world; in a context of dehumanisation, depersonalisation and reification. Definition of problems are segmented and reduced by public policies, academic formats, mass-media headlines, market-place’s interests and common sense prejudices. Justice, ethics, social equity, education, culture, public health, natural and man-made environments are impaired, human values that took centuries to develop are demolished.
