    Reflective questions for this episode:

    If you were touched by what Marcel shared and if you would like to put your inspiration into practice, we invite you to reflect on these questions over the course of this week:

    How do our daily habits, the way we consume and the way we communicate on social media, shape the context in which politicians are embolded to take pro-environmental decisions - or actually hesitate to do so, believing that this does not reflect "the will of the people"?
    What is it in our daily life or in our leadership role that we can do to become a climate diplomate and speak up for the environment?

    Reflective questions for this episode:

    If you have been touched by what Dianne had to say and you would like to put your inspiration into practice, we invite you to reflect on theses questions over the course of this week:

    How can we hear all the voices when we come together? At conferences of the parties like COP26 in Glasgow, when we gather within companies and also at home.
    How can we hear all the voices within our selves? Especially the quiter ones, the ones that will stand in for caring, nurturing, preserving, restoring what is around us?
    And if we hear those voices: what are they telling us and how can that guide our actions and decisions?
