An article I wrote called "Sortons de nos addictions collectives" is included in this French magazine called 3e Millénaire. The magazine costs €7.90 and can be bought here if you are interested: https://www.revue3emillenaire.com/shop/revues-papier/276-n-145-addict-moi-non-pas-du-tout.html
There is also a page on their website with interesting articles from other sources, by engaged voices of the Deep Ecology movement, such as Rupert Sheldrake and Vandana Shiva, translated into French and freely available. This high-quality magazine has been in existence for over 30 years, produced entirely by volunteers.

Oh, why do we not talk more about this issue, so crucial for future generations?
I wholeheartedly agree with this article which mourns the money being spent on dangerous false solutions like nuclear energy.

Deep Adaptation The paper (revised edition from the original of 27 July 2017) which is at the root of the Deep Adaptation movement. Jem Bendell, the author, is one of the very frank writers on the question of what we need to prepare for. Following his acknowledgement that he, like many others he has observed, doesn't interpret the available data exclusively with logic but assimilates it and then chooses the story that he decides to live from. He thus states on page 19 his current position in 2020: "Currently I have chosen to interpret the information as indicating inevitable collapse, probably catastrophe and possible extinction." This paper details, among many other fascinating considerations, the roots of the original 4Rs of the Deep Adaptation agenda, which have now become 5 or 6Rs, depending on who you read, as the themes are naturally in constant evolution.

The Uninhabitable Earth The article that gave me an electric shock and led, among other things, to my taking permaculture training and leaving my life in Paris with the desire to plant a forest-garden. Meeting The Work That Reconnects and Active Hope in May 2021 has allowed me to put all my energy behind my own response to the impact of this article.
A beautiful reflection from Lynne Twist, founder of the Pachamama Alliance, on the life-giving properties of money that is allowed to flow like water. Sent to me by my friend Alison, who knew I needed a new perspective on the subject! Thank you.
