The conference in 2021 will take place digitally and will be organised jointly by the Youth Section and the Section for Agriculture. With this digital format we want to make an exchange of views and true encounters possible, and look forward to meeting many participants from all over the world.
How can we breathe in the climate crisis? How can we understand the climate crisis at an ecological, spiritual and social level? Can the earth actually still bear my footprint?
Climate change is happening – and we can see it in the most varied places. Each person can inwardly balance the existential uncertainty that this causes to a certain extent, and nature and agriculture also have certain powers of resilience. But is there not an ongoing erosion over the years, both in the inner and outer fabric?
We want to use a broader concept of climate to develop a view of the earth as a living being, examine the facts and discuss possible solutions. We want to explore the purpose of the individual in relation to an apparently hopeless situation for humankind. We want to confront the explosive social consequences with the potential of a common will to tackle the urgent tasks together.
We wish to reach an enlivening breath which allows us to say: «The earth is waiting for my footprint – I want to walk on the earth and make my contribution for our joint future.»
