MOTIVATION FOR AND COMMITMENT TO CREATING A BETTER AND MORE SUSTAINABLE PLANET

I wish that the Project "ZeroCo2 Jobs Greenhouse" contributes to building the future sustainable economy by the hand and heart of young women, men and children. I want a 21st-century planet, completely different, not only because of the use of renewable energy or zero waste and zero emissions products and processes but because I want a more just, peaceful and loving world. It’s up to everyone to act: we are brothers and sisters living together in Planet Earth, our fragile only home.
