First I discovered the book. We were in a bookshop looking around and my eyes fell on this one: Manifeste convivialiste (Convivialist manifesto). The word “convivialiste” means a lot to me, as I don’t think we are “convivial” enough with each other. We should be so grateful for so many things, and be nicer to each other and smile more!
So I bought it, of course, because I was very curious! I discovered that behind this manifesto stand very interesting people, coming from different countries with different backgrounds.
I started reading and I think their ideas are good. A bit utopic, a bit extreme, but when I think where we are right now, with all resources coming to an end, I agree that an extreme solution might be needed.
Take a peak on their website and sign the pact if you agree with their ideas. Share yours as well if you like.
