On the final day of the session we asked some participant who inspires them the most. We then wanted to visualise what it would be like to see the world through their eyes. This is what they had to say.

Mechelen 2018 has encouraged participants to be more aware on how each and everyone of us could be more sustainable in our everyday life. With this discussion, we wanted to compare different cities and realise which steps are being taken by our hometowns to ensure a sustainable system.

We warmly encourage you to take the ecological footprint quiz to realise your ecological impact here: https://www.footprintcalculator.org/ Once we realise our weaknesses, we can better work on them.
