"There are no signposts at life's crossroads".

We are worried about our future, according to the new consumer climate index published by the Nuremberg-based research company GfK. No wonder. We are slipping from one crisis to the next. First the corona virus pushed the climate crisis out of the headlines, and now the war in Ukraine has pushed corona into the background. We are at a crossroads and wish for a signpost, but as Charly Chaplin once aptly put it, there are no road signs on the way to the unknown. But one thing seems clear: If we take our future seriously, we need to change the direction of our economic system. But for this to happen, I am convinced, we must let go of our fear that the necessary changes will make us losers in this system. Only then can we positively connect with this possible new economy and be a part of it.

Press release: February 20 is World Social Justice Day and the birthday of ECONOMY

February 20 is the United Nations International Social Justice Day. Putting this day in the spotlight is more necessary than ever: the wealth of the 10 richest people in the world has doubled since the beginning of the pandemic. Along the way, economic inequality reduced the income of 99 % of the world's population over the same period, and more than 160 million people have been pushed into poverty. This is according to Oxfam International's recently released "Inequality kills" report. Inequality kills because inequality contributes to the death of at least one person every four seconds. ...

The Fair Mouse - an example of why transparency in global supply chains is urgently needed

The prices we pay at the supermarkets and online stores for products lie. The ecological and social costs of overexploitation of people and nature, as it still takes place in the mines, factories and fields of Peru, are outsourced and are not reflected in the prices of the products. The supply chain law recently passed in Germany is intended to remedy this situation. But what are the consequences of the law for people and nature, and why is it so difficult to implement? Using the example of a simple computer mouse, I would like to explain the complexity of the issue to you. Actually, it is absurd that in the 21st century it is still necessary to pass a law to protect people against exploitation in the workplace. But it reflects the sad reality that in many countries, respect for human rights is far from self-evident.

Social Permaculture - so that ecology and justice bear fruit

As nature lovers, you probably know the term permaculture from the garden. There, it is certainly self-evident for you that diversity is an important building block for a thriving garden. But permaculture is an approach that can be applied to all areas of life. It takes into account the following ethical principles: Care for the earth, care for people, and care for the future â this third ethic is often referred to as âfair shareâ: Sharing surpluses and reducing consumption. Permaculture takes nature as its model. Patrick Whitefield, author of The Earthcare Manual, called permaculture âthe art of creating beneficial relationshipsâ. Here, plants in the garden are not considered in isolation, but in terms of how they influence each other, how they interact, how we can get a diverse yield from each element. From this much can be learned

The CURT-MAGAZIN has written about us!

Supply Chain Act - on the current status

"Will companies across Europe soon have to ensure that human rights violations and environmental destruction do not occur in their supply chains?" asks the Supply Chain Act initiative on the occasion of the vote in the European Parliament on this issue. The European initiative makes it clear: The draft law for a German supply chain law is insufficient!

With 504 votes in favor from 695 parliamentarians, the European Parliament gave a clear signal on March 11 in favor of the so-called "Legislative Report on Human Rights and Environmental Due Diligence of Businesses". This recommendation of the European Parliament is addressed to the EU Commission. Now EU-wide supply chain legislation is to be introduced. In terms of content, the European Parliament goes far beyond the watered-down German bill agreed by the German government last week.
