YOU make the difference
Reminding us to take action
The Totem-3-Unity is addressing to both adolescents and adults and is composed of three elements :
The tallest element contains the 3 attitudes to life which are universal, do not exclude and speak to all of us :
Mutual Respect - of vital importance [Wederzijds Respect / Le Respect Mutuel]
It is all about really trying to understand each other through dialogue and active listening.
Our view of reality is often a matter of perspective, of focus, of context.
Sincere friendship - the roots of human solidarity [Oprechte Vriendschap / L’Amitié Sincère]
It is all about commitment towards one another through a return to inter-human contacts.
This applies to both NOW and future generations as well to mankind as to mother earth.
Equality in dignity - the very core of our civilization [Gelijk in waadigheid / L’Egalité Dans la Dignité]
It is all about our thinking and acting through appropriate responses without (pre)judgments.
A behavior without distinction of any kind or nature, status or origin.
The smallest element translates Mutual Respect into an adolescents adapted wording EN‑NL‑FR
Playing together and sharing together – Samen spelen, samen delen – Jouer ensemble et partager
The average length element is without inscriptions and invites us to project our own attitudes on the pole.
It is a beacon people pass every day but hopefully they will not ignore it. This beacon reminds us to take action for a better world with more commitment, more commons sense and more responsibility of each of us.
