You are right, education is really the point where it all has to start. (Do I remember a politician we all know say education, education...etc?)
When in Udine (Northern Italy) for a workshop some years ago, we were given a clothbag with information on the place as a welcome present. To my horror, my colleague, quite a sensible guy normally, fairtrade supporter etc, took out the brochures and chucked the bag in the bin
. Didn't understand why I was upset about it.
Needless to say, I still have that bag.
