On September 19, the Cumbre Vieja volcano in the Canaries woke up. Until then it had been dormant for 50 years! Smoke billowed up into the sky and could be seen from all over the island.
Streams of red-hot lava were literally attacking homes, infrastructure and crops. About 5,000 people were evacuated from nearby municipalities.

Climatic disasters and the destruction of the planet due to human activity, in one way or another, affect all the citizens of the Earth. And people are not prepared for the catastrophic consequences of cyclical climate change, because there is no understanding of which processes can be influenced by humans, and which cannot.
Now uniting is very important for us, for all humankind. Only together will we be able to withstand the times of global climate change.
The Creative Society is the only possible option for humanity to survive and evolve. But time flows inexorably fast, and everything depends on us!
