This morning was not much different than the previous one, I just feel lucky to have the drinking water that I unfortunately had to buy yesterday in plastic bottles, and to have my box of home grown and hand picked black currants to have in addition to breakfast. Good surprise however was the beetroot salad that was added to the breakfast options today :) Yeey!
When it is 29 degrees C already in 9:00am, then you can't stop thinking about climate change and how privileged we as a species of human beings are to have options of conditioning, cooling elements and water.
This also makes me think of the definition of Sustainable development we have been using here at EYM, which in my opinion is wrong. Well, the current definition from Bruntland commission sounds like this: "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Well, I think we're missing the additional point here. The last part of it should include that it is for all species, otherwise we are just thinking of human needs.. sadly.. so my elaboration would be this:
"meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations of all species to meet their own needs."
But well, back to work. This morning session of EYM was presentation of the key challenges of the working groups (ours in previous post). However, I really wanted to share a video that accompanied our speeches that was created by one of the group members.
Great thanks to him and enjoy, think and act!
