Greta Tintin Eleonora Ernman Thunberg is a Swedish environmental activist on climate change whose campaigning has gained international recognition. Thunberg is known for her blunt, straightforward speaking manner, both in public and to political leaders and assemblies, in which she urges immediate action to address what she describes as the climate crisis. Greta Thunberg’s urgent message to tackle the climate crisis has sparked a wave of action from the global school strikes to political promises for zero-emission economies. But if we’re serious about Global Goal 13 for climate action, we need to wield our most powerful weapon of all: our vote. With elections coming up in the UK and the US over the next year, Thunberg’s call to engage with our democratic rights couldn’t be more timely.

Adriano Olivetti (1901 – 1960) è stato un imprenditore, ingegnere e politico italiano, figlio di Camillo Olivetti fondatore della prima fabbrica italiana di macchine per scrivere. Uomo di grande e singolare rilievo nella storia italiana del secondo dopoguerra, si distinse per i suoi innovativi progetti industriali basati sul principio secondo cui il profitto aziendale deve essere reinvestito a beneficio della comunità. Adriano Olivetti riuscì a creare nel secondo dopoguerra italiano un'esperienza di fabbrica nuova e unica al mondo in un periodo storico in cui si fronteggiavano due grandi potenze: capitalismo e comunismo. Olivetti credeva che fosse possibile creare un equilibrio tra solidarietà sociale e profitto, tanto che l'organizzazione del lavoro comprendeva un'idea di felicità collettiva che generava efficienza. Gli operai vivevano in condizioni migliori rispetto alle altre grandi fabbriche italiane: ricevevano salari più alti, vi erano asili e abitazioni vicino alla fabbrica che rispettavano la bellezza dell'ambiente, i dipendenti godevano di convenzioni. Per tutelare e promuovere la figura di Adriano Olivetti e il suo pensiero gli eredi hanno costituito nel 1962 la Fondazione Adriano Olivetti con sede a Roma e a Ivrea. "Adriano Olivetti" è un marchio registrato, depositato nel 2018 dalla Fondazione Adriano Olivetti.

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, more commonly Leonardo da Vinci, was an Italian polymath of the Renaissance whose areas of interest included invention, drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, paleontology, and cartography. He is widely considered one of the greatest painters of all time, despite perhaps only 15 of his paintings have survived. The Mona Lisa is the most famous of his works and the most popular portrait ever made. The Last Supper is the most reproduced religious painting of all time and his Vitruvian Man drawing is regarded as a cultural icon as well. Leonardo's paintings and preparatory drawings, together with his notebooks, which contain sketches, scientific diagrams, and his thoughts on the nature of painting, compose a contribution to later generations of artists rivaled only by that of his contemporary Michelangelo. Although he had no formal academic training, many historians and scholars regard Leonardo as the prime exemplar of the 'Universal Genius' or 'Renaissance Man', an individual of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination", and he is widely considered one of the most diversely talented individuals ever to have lived.
