  1. Inner Green Deal

Liane and Jeroen describe the Inner Green Deal as “a gift for the future” because it can help “change hearts and minds for a sustainable world”. The inner dimension of sustainability is usually underrepresented in all initiatives around pro-environmental actions. The Inner Green Deal assumes that our current crisis is a crisis of relationships. How can mindfulness teachers contribute to that necessary shift from ego to eco?

In this session we will explore together the root-cause of our current crisis and what we can do about it, specially holding the golden nugget of “mindfulness expertise” in our hands.
