In-person event. This event is FREE of charge.
Discussion, sharing and reflection on creating a climate-friendly lifestyle that builds happiness and inner strength.
About this event
In this workshop, we look at our lifestyles and behavioural structures that harm the earth and the climate in particular.
The first step is to understand the chain of effects of our consumer behaviour. Building on this we look at personal reasons leading to behaviour more deeply.
Why do we, as actually "rational" people, destroy our own living space? What understanding and awareness have we lost? What really makes us happy?
We will discuss these questions in small groups and compile in the plenary how we can live in a climate-friendly and at the same time happy way.
