Because we need to be able to stop and look
There comes a time where we end up transferring all of our qualities to our business… but also all of our flaws! It is then time to take a step back and think of the meaning of it all andyour next steps. Its what I chose to do at Medi-Market.
I spent all those years running; running after great projects, with real issues, but without taking the time to look at the bigger picture. And when I finally did, what a slap in the face!
Because we can all change
My children, Valentine, Victor and Pierre were the first to make me realize the scale of the ecological crisis that is taking place. From then on, it wasn’t possible for me to continue like before. To give meaning to my life, my next project had to participate in some way or another in the construction of a more sustainable, just, and humane world.
Today, I am going into politics with the same energy as when I was developing start-ups. It is urgent to assemble all our strength to succeed in transforming a way of life that is on course for disaster. To create a system that finally takes into account the limited material and economical resources of our planet, that allows each and every one of us to blossom, to accomplish, and that puts the added value of humans back at the center of priorities.
Because we no longer have a choice
Changing is not easy and it asks for a lot of courage. I clearly have my own limits. But changing is possible as long as we believe in it and keep our values close to our hearts.
We are at a crossroads for our civilization. Science is firm on that point. Change will happen whether we want it or not. The question now is whether we’re going to drive it or to be victim of it. If we do nothing, it will happen in chaos and violence. If we anticipate it, if we have the will to take necessary measures, I am convinced that we can even hope to live better tomorrow than today. The best way to predict the future is to create it.
