My wife and I where pretty busy this week organising all there is to organise for our newest addition to the family. This is such great fun but I also wondered what the future of our little will be like when she grows up. In what kind of world will she live in terms of environmental diversity and freedom to do what she likes with her life. Obviously it is impossible to look into the future but I would like to see her being open to sustainability ideas and being an open minded person that does not judge a person after a first impression. This is a very big topic and not easy to answer in a single blog post. So lets tackle this by looking at sustainability ideas today.
So what is your view on how we could encourage our children to be more sustainable people then we are today? What experiences did you make raising a child and providing it/them with access to sustainability idea and a more sustainable way of living?
This is where I will start
I will try to be a very good role-model for our little girl and I am sure my wife and I will try to raise in the most sustainable way possible for us. But one of biggest fears is that I would take away her own personal way of making up her view of the world. This is what really helped me to go where I am today and I believe that this is a key element of each individuals personal development.
Obviously this is very early to worry about these kind of topics but I wanted to raise this topic you my readers and ask for your comments if you have any.
