Join us for an exciting day: let's take a ride from eco-anxiety to an inspiring future!

Although exact figures are still hard to find, there is growing consensus among professionals that 'eco-anxiety' is rapidly rising due to serious issues concerning not only our ecosystems, but our societies in general. A great number of young people have taken to the streets recently to show their discontent and to be heard all over the world.

Many of us think that it is now our turn to find a way to support them and build a more desirable future, for all - but for this to happen, we first need to feel empowered to take positive actions.

Our planned joint TILT groups event aims to do just that - and in a single day!
