It’s undeniable that the ecological transition is here and more and more individuals are joining the movement. When I say individuals, I’m including children because they’re well aware of the environmental challenges we face. They, too, have a positive impact on the planet and we could let them inspire us!
There are movies that we watch while reconnecting with our inner zombie after a tiring day, and then there are those that leave us amazed, with a burning little flame that animates us. It’s the latter that I want to talk to you about today. Let’s dive into universes that are good for morale and drive us to take action!
