👁️🫀🫂 We could say that "observe, understand and act" are the key actions of what we call a full life. Surely you remember that time when you were not able to carry them out. It has happened to all of us. It's not nice.
👤🗣️👥 It is in those situations that we are not able to foresee, process or react when we can appreciate being a "social animal". It is in those moments where it is important to remember our ability to accompany (or be accompanied). To overcome those moments and move forward together (or stop or go back) towards a full life.
📬📬📬 In this newsletter we talk about projects that respond to war with self-organization, to the disconnection from our origins with tenderness, and learning difficulties with ingenuity and tenacity. Thank you, once again, for sharing initiatives that, in the face of nonsense, show us a new path.
Solidarity menus for Ukraine 🍲
🍲 They keep crossing the border. Just 40 days ago his life was totally different, but the war in his country, Ukraine, has forced millions of people to leave their homes behind.
🧳 They arrive with light luggage, scared and enduring the low temperatures of this time of year. Many of them have gone days without eating or eating what little they have been able to find along the way. And that is why the work of World Central Kitchen is so important, raising funds so that this organization can continue offering menus and hot food to all the people who are leaving the country due to the war. Can you help us to achieve it?

Pantera Magazine 2022 🐆
🐆 "It takes a town to raise a child", and it takes a town to create projects to green childhood. The children's environmental magazine PANTERA launches a crowdfunding process with the aim of promoting the first stone of the first project collaborative educational program that was born from the magazine, PANTERA COLAB.
🌱 This team of teachers, illustrators, editors, biologists, designers... with infinite passion and a clear mission: to connect nature with childhood, learning and life. Also return childhood to adults. At what point do we stop playing, wondering? At what point do we begin to act taking everything for granted? At what point do we stop looking at the beauty of those closest to us? At what point did we lose our judgment and disconnect?
🌳 If you also feel the importance and urgency of reconnecting, discover the project at goteo.cc/panteramagazine2022.
Easy Science 🧪
The Easy Science magazine was born within the PDICIENCIA inclusive science project created by the Association of Relatives and Friends of People with Intellectual Disabilities (AFAMP). It is a pioneering project in Spain, which aims to achieve the full inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities through the communication of an inclusive and accessible scientific culture.
🤗 To date, 2 Easy Science digital magazines have been published, with a biannual character. They have been very well received both in the world of disability and in scientific communication and education.
For them, they want to continue working in this line, and with your support they will be able to continue adapting scientific news to easy reading and validated by people with intellectual disabilities, and thus be able to launch two other issues of this peculiar magazine.
