How to interpret air pollution?

Boeiend proces

Jean-Paul Close's Blog

One of the citizen’s sustainocratic initiatives that we initiated in Eindhoven (Netherlands) is the co-creation of the healthiest city of the world using air quality as guiding principle.

About Jean-Paul Close

Life forms in nature are healthy by definition. Unhealthy ones disappear to make room for a new cycle of healthy life. If human organizations, societies, governance and economies accept unhealthy pollution we hence destroy ourselves. A new governance appears based on awareness of core values to sustain our species and living surroundings. It a new democracy called Sustainocracy. Old structures collaps as the new one grows. Sustainocracy exists through new age ventures like AiREAS, FRE2SH and STIR learning cooperation.
