“Think about how you are connected to nature.” That’s what Prof. Dr. Matthias Glaubrecht challenges us to do on today’s edition of Inside Ideas.
“How do you get your food? What are you eating? Are you eating beef, are you eating meat? What kind and how often?,” he asks. “Because that’s all related to rainforest destruction, we know this, it’s related to how we grow food. And I think it is not about waiting for politicians to change the rules. It is about us being aware that we should help to change the rules. That means how often we use planes in the future, what we eat, where we go, how we treat nature in our gardens. We must be much more conscious.”
It echoes Gandhi’s ‘be the change you wish to see in the world’ message and Matthias offers some great insight on how we can all take responsibility in doing this to forge a sustainable future for people and planet.
He also talks about his new book, published by C. Bertelsmann, on ‘The End of Evolution. Man and the Destruction of Species‘, which is not only nominated for the NDR Culture Non-Fiction Prize 2020, but also as the best science book in the field of non-fiction / biology by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research. If you’ve read it, you can vote for the book until January 2021.
Inside Ideas is on every Tuesday + Thursday. You can watch all the shows on YouTube, and listen to the audio wherever you get your podcast. And remember to follow the show on Instagram and Facebook.
