Summary: We are experiencing a turbulent period that is both scary and promising. The loss of confidence in the politicians and media, the perception of injustice and of course, the extreme urgency of the ecological and climate crises can be also the fertile soil for something completely new. It’s time to empower ourselves, broaden our knowledge, improve our analytical skills, help to live out our values and enable people to contribute their best selves to our struggles and contexts. Creativity is a powerful tool to create the future we want to live in.
