2. International Sustainability Conference, July 17-18, 2010
Welcome to participate at the Conference (17-18th of july) or the whole camp (12-18 of july)
"Nature and Humanity"
”Think seven generations ahead before every important decision” –Native American saying
Today many people agree that humans have plundered nature for short-term gain. Scientists, politicians and the general public are all starting to question our way of life. How did it come to this and what can we do about it? These questions are crucial and concern us all. The change starts with each of us and together we can make a difference if we take the issues seriously…
So welcome to Mundekulla’s second international conference on Sustainable Lifestyle!
Inspiring lectures, meetings and discussions!
Welcome to an experience based event where you get inspiration and a chance to take a step toward your vision of how you want to live and act in the world. During the weekend lecturers from different parts of the world present their perspectives on mankind’s relationship with nature. The weekend closes with an Open space forum where all participants are invited to share their thoughts.
