We belong to the Earth

Eco Summer Camp for Young Adults, 25 August – 1 September 2022

Client: Lassalle Institut, Switzerland

The struggle against environmental degradation and the preservation of our planet must first and foremost become a cultural movement in which everyone assumes their own responsibility, as individuals and in cooperation with their peers. Thus, we are all called upon to make our personal contribution as well. The time for mere delegation to others is over. Only in this way can we bring about changes in the long term that will deeply transform our society from within, so that we can look to the future with confidence – for ourselves and for the generations to come. What is our position on the global changes that challenge us today in economy, politics and the environment? How can existing resources be used sustainably? What social and political solutions are we looking for and do we want to implement? What changes in daily life are needed? These are just some of the questions that are of concern to us and that we want to get to the bottom of from the 22nd to the 28th of August 2021. Over 40 young adults are attending, and a dozen experts and scholars will animate these days. With our one-week academy, young people, who are our future decision-makers, can exchange ideas with experts and like-minded people at eye level. These fruitful encounters will contribute to advancing the ecological-spiritual transformation of our society.
