Matthijs Schouten is een van de sprekers bij TEDxApeldoorn met als thema “Growth” :

“Who do we think we are ? Attitudes to nature and our future”.

What is urgently needed is that we grow in our understanding of the fact that we are not people in this world but from this world. That we are with the world and that the well-being of nature and the Earth is interrelated with our own well-being. Only from that consciousness we will be able to create a sustainable future for the community of all life. Matthijs Schouten (1952) studied biology, Celtic language and Literature, Religious Sciences and Oriental philosophy. After his studies, he worked for a long time in Ireland. He has been working at Staatsbosheer since 1992 as an ecologist and philosopher. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
