Today I want to talk about words. How often in your life you had big misunderstandings just because you meant something that was interpreted as something different ? It is more common than you may think .
When navigating through the best way of living in today’s world - we are finding the same issues.
Yes. Are we trying to be sustainable ? Eco conscious ? Environmentally friendly ? Natural ? Earth-conscious?
Today I want to start with a little challenge .
Open the newspaper and see whether you can find some scientific news.
Chances are that yes. you will.
And not just because of Covid or climate change. These issues for sure have bulked it up and have contributed to me finding a lot of issues with this kind of reporting by news outlets. Yes, because willingly or not, I have some knowledge about the latter from my own research and about the former from colleagues and family members..
But it's not just the latest science, no the issue is much more deep rooted...
Today’s post is inspired by an Instagram advertising that I saw last night.
It reads ‘Why gift flowers? Nothing says “I love you” like gifting a forest’.
Oh yes, it’s Valentine’s day weekend..
Today’s post may seem to be disconnected from sustainability, but actually it has everything to do with it. To be sustainable it means to also understand the world around us better, in order to be better inhabitants.
I will keep it short,
Too often people take science as something that produces dogmas. ‘Science said it’ so must be true.
So often, if we read in news articles that some scientist said something, then we believe that it must be true and that it will always be true. And well, even if we imagine that the journalist reported the scientist words truthfully, this is still not a good approach to science understanding
