Today, participants Monica van Leeuwen and Ceriel Lucker from the CYBELT Journey share their story with us. We talk about how Monica's parents' farm in Belgium got impacted by climate change, how to best communicate climate-friendly behaviours with your friends and about their group project: the Green Wave. It aims to reduce the gap between climate awareness and action through positive storytelling, which is a powerful tool to "spark new discussions". They invite YOU to share your story about your personal journey towards sustainability on the global climate action day on September 25th. Tune in to hear how you can become part of this Instagram campaign. "Be the example yourself" and "just do it" because "if you never failed something it means you never tried something new".
Monica recommends to familiarize yourself with the concept of the Doughnut Economy.: a must-read these days. You can get a first idea about the concept here: https://www.kateraworth.com/doughnut/
