Involving young people internationally

During the weekly radio program of our Society of Tomorrow (Sustainocracy) I had the opportunity to talk with our European partners. They develop exchange programs for and with our young generations together with schools and institutions. The European Erasmus+ program is often used for funding. Sustainocracy provides inspirational content.

Listen to the words of Yunus, Meric and Nuri from Turkey http://www.youtheurasia.org

Open online discussion about applying food forests for regenerative food resilience in the world

On september 22 at 15.00 CET we will open the FRE2SH global zoom again (register for free participation) together with our educational partner OSFD and various experts. This third learning theme in the series of ten on regenerative food resilience is about Food Forests. Participation is free of charge.

Our speakers come from Colombia, Rio de Janeiro and Poland. Each have a passion for our relationship with nature for our food supply.

Lucas Posada (Colombia) is active in the field of intuitive cooking. He tries the broaden the meaning of food and our awareness that we as human being are an expression of our natural environment. Fernanda Tubenchlak (Brasil) has a more academic contribution. She did a masters in forest landscape restauration and the role of agroforestry in those processes. Andrew Kandziora and Agnieszka (Aga) Guziewicz represent their Chata Mirdada Health and Recovery resort in Poland where they work together with nature for integral human wellness.

We are excited to connect so many initiatives in our global FRE2SH network. Together we create a new reality around food resilience and restoration of both our health and our natural environment. We wish to eliminate hunger, poverty and inequality by defining food as a shared responsibility instead of an industrialized commodity.

We are equally excited to be able to help so many new people ahead with our low cost OSFD learning environment and collection of experts, to make this reality grow into a new mainstream of Health Valleys accross the world.

3 days

That is the amount of time a human being can live without water.

3 minutes without air and 30 days without food. We look at nature around us and observe with what speed our rivers have dried up. 8 billion people and our entire world of food depends on this water. And our time span without it is 3 days!

This is not enough time to jail all those who have (mis)used our planetary resources as consumables for financial self-interests. It is not enough time to restore our long term disharmonized relationship with nature. It is not enough time to install technology for drinking water and irrigation. The time we had we wasted in looking away and talking politics.

Lesson learned?

Have we now accepted that our sustainable prospects as a human species are no political or financial debate. That we cannot eat or drink money. That the laws of nature are the real economy? That our individual financial interests are worth nothing when we are dead! That we have to take responsibility of our essential values together. That we have to it now! We don´t have decades. When things like these droughts happen we don´t even have years or months.

We need to accept massively level 4 regional development, a Sustainocracy of shared core values and responsibilities. It is as simple as that.
