What about you?

50 years ago, prophets of doom predicted that we were heading for an ecological catastrophe. Stop growth, it sounded everywhere, or things will explode. But why were these doomsayers proven wrong?

How can we avert the climate crisis, just as we averted previous ecological disasters? The optimism during this inspirement is very refreshing. How can we think big and act smaller? And above all; how do we keep a cool head?

Science has shown conclusively that large-scale changes are necessary. It is inevitable that we rebalance our human activities within planetary boundaries.

This inspirement is 100% customized and zooms in on a specific sector, for example: energy, agriculture, food, education, care and welfare, the built living environment, transportation, industry, (local) government and others.

It’s really necessary: improve yourself and start with the world. It’s easy to point to the government or industry. But people often underestimate their own impact, and change really does start with yourself.

How can we make a difference at home, with our family at the breakfast table? How necessary is our behavioral change and why is it so much fun to do something about climate change and inspire others to do the same?
