Europa 2016- Think Green
Every year under the aegis of PostEurop, special stamps with the EUROPA logo are issued that have a unique central theme for all its members. The theme for 2016 is planet Earth and natural environment protection. Considering that this year, the 60th anniversary of EUROPA stamps is being celebrated, all member countries have the same postage stamp design.
Leonardo da Vinci once said: „Even though man has found a great number of discoveries by his spiritual abilities, he will never reveal the discovery that only nature can surpass by all its beauty, simplicity and immediacy, in which its creation nothing is missing and nothing is excessive.“
In relation to previous centuries today the co-existence of man and nature has been greatly altered, because man has put himself in the centre of everything. Harmful consequences are being noticed all the more often, because industrial development has more impact on the permanent damaging of the environment.
Irresponsible behavior, not only of large companies, but also of every individual, has brought us to negative impacts that the modern man must face and generations that are to come. We must understand that man needs nature in order to live. Therefore, it is necessary to grow in coherence with nature, and should use modern technological achievements for improving and developing according to the environment that surrounds us.
