The theme “Human Nature” symbolizes an array of topics we would like to cover on November, 25.

Thanks to our intelligence we infect and destroy our environment with our natural, industrial, chemical and nucleair waste. But we do not have a clue how to solve this before this situation will turn against us. Worse: Recent insights reveal we are just not wired to solve this puzzle.
