“Poor is not he who owns little, but he who sees little.” (Radka Denemarková) [1]


Our world is moving away from humanist principles. We are in the grip of a self-centered economic pragmatism through which we are transforming all other values.

If we are to realistically influence these developments, we must focus on practical and concrete subjects that will lead to social, environmental, societal, cultural, economic, and political action. But action is always preceded by thought. And changes in behavior are preceded by a change in thinking.

In order to want to change things and be capable of doing so, we must first, see, feel, and understand the world around us. In order to act together, we must want the things we see, feel, and understand and we must be capable of passing them on and sharing them with others.
