Every single minute a surface equal to 36 football fields disappear from our planet Earth. The removal of trees without sufficient reforestation has resulted in damage to habitat, biodiversity loss and aridity. Deforested regions typically incur significant adverse soil erosion and frequently degrade into wasteland. Deforestation accounts for up to 20 percent of the global greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming, with the effects on climate changing that we’re watching almost every day in the news.

In occasion of the United Nation’s International Year of Forests, Musei Civici present THE ENCHANTED FOREST, an international charity group show dedicated to the forests and their inhabitants. Some rooms of the Museum will be turned into a magic garden by delicate, innocent, mutating to survive creatures.

We cannot survive in a habitat made of our own waste.
