Laurent TATFORD, Founder, Nice, May 5 2016
It all started after I watched the documentary “DEMAIN” seen by a million persons in France, an unprecedented figure for a documentary!
I had a pretty pessimistic vision of what the world would turn into… Pollution, overpopulation, exhaustion of natural resources… with humans causing the sixth mass extinction to come.
Then I saw “DEMAIN”.
I suddenly became enlightened to see so many people taking over the course of their destiny, making changes here and there, and acting to make this world a better place to live. It made me realise that each one of us, individually, can make a change; a change that politics and governmental bodies have failed to achieve.
It is all about taking control over our life again.
I have found it so inspiring… That it made me feel like taking action now. Thus, the name of the project INSPIRACTION.news
We aim at publishing articles which tell stories and experiment of individual, groups or political actions in the field of :
- agriculture and organic food
- shared economies and citizen communities
- renewable energy and sustainable development
- trading, sharing, alternative solutions
- recycling, re-using, reducing, repairing, innovating.
The idea is to share what is being done on our planet and in any language.
We wish to provide qualitative and exhaustive content on solutions and social innovation reported by the local, regional, national and international media, with the aim to provide ideas than can be appropriate by anyone.
