Relationships to self, others, and the planet

Our unsustainable way of life is a direct reflection of our relationships - with ourselves, with others, and with the planet. The unhealthy relationship with ourselves manifests itself in increasing rates of burnout, depression, and mental illnesses. We are chronically stressed, suffer time or performance pressure, and prevent inner collapse with supposedly ever more efficient self-optimization. The relationship crisis with others manifests itself in the isolation and anonymization of our living environment and dwindling solidarity, social division, and political radicalization. The crisis of our relationship to the non-human environment, which is often considered separately, manifests itself in numerous ecological problems, from the loss of biodiversity to global warming and the associated extreme weather events worldwide.
