Europe – a culture for individual development
Europe is in danger of being pulverized between East and West, as well as by the current refugee crisis and the ongoing financial impasse. We need a new vision for a strong European idea of diversity and cultural richness that can come to grips with the many interlocking trouble spots.
Europe is not only an economic union. Through its Christian cultural roots, war-torn history and humanitarian catastrophes it has also become a community of values. Here the global longing of human beings to develop themselves freely and experience social justice is given a certain protection and recognition. Equality between men and women, and active tolerance towards different ethnic groups, cultures and religious denominations (which is growing in the member states) make this cultural space precious.
Europe is in danger of being crushed between East and West - currently exacerbated by the refugee crisis - as well as the ongoing financial crisis. The ideology of unchecked monetary and economic growth is proving to be increasingly incompatible with human and environmental health. Life consists of dying and becoming, growth, rest and dissolution – each in its own time and place. Help us to bring about the right development for Europe – enabling it to also inspire other communities of people!
ELIANT works to further the development of this unique European culture. With regard to biodiversity and soil health we do this through organic and biodynamic agriculture, including seed research. On a scientific level we promote a plurality of methods, and we seek a legal framework that allows for individual development and ensures the continued availability of alternatives. What is the point in having freedom of choice in education, training or medicine when, for example, regulations hinder complementary medicine and vital medical products are not available across the EU?
