Université de Nice Sophia Antipolis Valrose : c'était le nom d'une des plus belles propriétés de la Riviera. C'est aujourd'hui le nom d'un Campus universitaire parmi les mieux situés de France, siège de l'Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis et de la Faculté des Sciences. (UNS web site) Peace and survival of life on Earth as we know it are threatened by human activities that lack a commitment to humanitarian values. Destruction of nature and natural resources results from ignorance, greed, and a lack of respect for the Earth's living things... . It is not difficult to forgive destruction in the past, which resulted from ignorance. Today, however, we have access to more information, and it is essential that we re-examine ethically what we have inherited, what we are responsible for, and what we will pass on to coming generations. Clearly this is a pivotal generation... . Our marvels of science and technology are matched if not outweighed by many current tragedies, including human starvation in some parts of the world, and extinction of other life forms... . We have the capability and responsibility. We must act before it is too late. Tenzin Gyatso the fourteenth Dalai Lama.
