New green life

Halina Zalewska – Biotoop 2021

What does new green life mean to you? Do you think of the rhythm of seasons, of living and working in the green, living in balance with nature or something else? Is it about your life, the life of nature, plants and animals, of new generations, new life, a new earth, sustainable economy or something completely different? What do you hope for, do you dream of when it comes to new green life? What would you like to be different in your life, in living things, in what the earth gives, food, water, earth, energy …? What is different in this new greener life, when nature is richer and wilder and how will new generations notice this? Do you already see signs of this new green life somewhere? What makes brings this into being and what does its existence require? Does something have to die, is it about transformation, reincarnation, does it require activism or something else….?

What is a dialogue?

Utrecht in Dialoog

A dialogue is an open conversation about experiences, dreams and possibilities. In a dialogue, you enter into a conversation with each other, and you meet people who you may not normally meet. Everyone is discussed and heard. Real listening is the basis of this. A dialogue contributes to mutual understanding, connection and insight.

Since the corona crisis, we have been going into dialogue online so that everyone can participate at a safe distance. We use Zoom for the online conversations. You can sign up for a dialogue via the red button on the top of the page. You will then receive an email with a login link and password that will give you access to the Zoom meeting room where the dialogue takes place.

Expedition New Green Life

In the first edition of this expedition Discover Mother Nature, we see nature in our neighborhood and new life with different eyes. Be surprised and inspired by the power of nature, by neighbours, people and animals and new life in your neighbourhood. In the second edition of New Green Life, we explore how the district, neighbourhood and street can become greener, what this brings and demands. Share your experiences and desires, listen to those of others and discover what you can do yourself and together to live close to nature, in / with nature, to breathe new life into nature ….. In the third edition When Working Together is Worthwhile, we reflect on the ideas and initiatives that are truly worthwhile for ourselves, others and future generations. Sign up for the series, spread the word, bring your neighbors and friends and put the dates in your calendar! If possible, we will meet in the open air at Griftsteede city farm.
