New Acropolis Mumbai organized a debate entitled “Empowering real change”, in collaboration with the Indian Express newspaper. Speakers included the educator and environmental specialist Sonam Wangchuk, the philanthropist Tsarina Screwvala (Swades Foundation) and the philosopher Yaron Barzilay (Director of New Acropolis in India).

With over 150 attendees, the presenters at this ’round table’ emphasized the need for a sustainable change in society, beyond quick and immediate fixes, which are of little relevance and lead to uncertainty and despair. A collective investigation showed that the “Post-truth” world  (Word of the Year 2016, Oxford Dictionary), leads to individuals’ inability to dream and to aspire to a better world. It turns out that our challenges could be more possible to carry out, redefining how society provides education. Ultimately, the responsibility rests with the individual at the time of choosing to participate in the change.

A group of volunteers from New Acropolis Sabadell spent a recent morning cleaning up an area, made up of forest and trails.

This initiative is part of the Heket project for the conservation and cleaning of the surroundings of Sabadell (forests and trails). On this occasion we also talked about the diverse trees and plants that can be found in the area, and their usefulness for health and for everyday life.

This program complements the Ríos Project, which examines the quality of water and collaborates to the cleanliness of a stretch of the Ripoll river.
