Seminar: Undestand and hope to act
We are facing an unprecedented period in our history. Never before has our society been subjected to such pressure: pandemia, climatic warming, castrophes n aturelles n aturelles plus frequent, pollutions, social and distribution inequalities, problems of governance, technological dependance, economic dynamism and difficulty in projecting oneself into the future. Urgency is omnipresent. Worry, anxiety, and discouragement win us all. That is why it has become essential to question our choices, our decisions, our habits and our ways of life.
Is there still hope for our future? Can we make a difference? Do we have real power in our hands? The answer is "YES" to all these questions. In fact, "to be able to act you have to understand and to want to act you have to hope".

The participant will be able to appreciate the importance and feasibility of social and citizen responsibility. In addition to the in-depth knowledge of the world he has acquired, he will be able to act at his level and will also derive interesting benefits regarding his quality of life and the reduction of his anxiety.
