Detail


Ai Weiwei

"There's no refugee crisis, but only human crisis. In dealing with refugees we've lost our very basic values. In this time of uncertainty, we need more tolerance, compassion and trust for each other since we all are one. Otherwise, humanity will face an even bigger crisis."Ai Weiwei.
From the National Gallery in Prague.


The Extinction Symbol

The Extinction Symbol has a circle representing our planet and an hour-glass representing the time running out for countless thousands of species as we enter the Sixth Great Extinction of the Anthropocene. More information at Extinction Symbol



The Doughnut

A 21st century compass. Between its social foundation of human well-being and ecological ceiling of planetary pressure lies the safe and just space for humanity.


The Acrobats

"The acrobats exemplify our skill of trusting, reciprocating and cooperating with each other to achieve things that none of us could alone." Kate Raworth, from Doughnut Economics, page 127.
