Newsletter November – Thank you

Thank you for taking the time to read this newsletter at a time when the news hits us with wars, fear and despair, with only an occasional glimmer of light. The climate crisis is also far from over, but the movement dedicated to tackling this challenge is growing. Its voice is getting louder, its voice is being heard. Energiesprong feels part of this global movement. We know that we can’t solve such a big problem all at once, we have to take small steps. With our everlasting efforts we are taking these small steps, with heart and soul.
