Ecology is increasingly taking an important place in our lives and the need to protect our environment is the subject of many debates and growing concern. We must change our lifestyle if we want avoid a runaway increase in the dangers facing us.

Building a new society means allowing men to live in dignity, being able to share and care.
Building a new society means inventing a new model of development based on changes in methods of production and consumption, in every field: energy, transport, housing, agricultural, health, etc.
Building a new society means establishing an ecological democracy, i.e. developing a new kind of governance, given that all citizens are concerned by environmental crises, both as victims and as contributors.
Building a new society means working on the idea of reconciliation.
Reconciliation between political power and citizens.
Reconciliation between the spirit of enterprise and the spirit of sharing.
Reconciliation between man and nature.
