Limited Capacity filling up



***Be aware that this is a two-days workshop***

What sort of world will our children inherit? And why are we so determined to obliterate all the natural wonders that they perceive in it?

Perhaps we need to re-learn that sense of wonder they have to re-appreciate what we are losing and galvanise us into action.

Then we need to follow their lead in simple answers to complex problems by de-cluttering the climate change debate and imaginatively answering the tasks ahead of us.



Quel monde laisserons-nous à nos enfants ? Pourquoi cette détermination à oblitérer toutes les merveilles naturelles que leur esprit d’enfant leur permet de percevoir ? Peut-être avons-nous besoin de réapprendre ce sens de l’émerveillement que seuls les enfants sont capables de montrer, pour de nouveau apprécier ce que nous sommes en train de perdre et déclencher ainsi notre passage à l’action. Nous vous proposons de suivre l’exemple de nos enfants, en décloisonnant le débat autour du dérèglement climatique et en faisant preuve d’imagination pour répondre aux tâches qui nous attendent, afin d’opposer des réponses simples à des problèmes complexes.
