Prince Charles has said that he finds it ‘unbelievable’ when people question why tackling ‘terrifying environmental issues’ should be made a priority?
Prince Charles warned that humanity’s place on Earth could be derailed ‘for good’.
At time of the conference.
Prince Charles spoke of his vision for harmony between food and farming during a conference at Landovery College in South Wales. The conference, organised by the Sustainable Food Trust. It follows Prince Charles’ book Harmony, A New Way Of Looking At Our World.
Prince Charles gave a statement saying:-
“Humans were doing our utmost to test to destruction the living system of nature. This is why I find it so unbelievable when people ask why we should bother with the conservation of the Earth’s dwindling biodiversity”.
“Or why we should strive to make the terrifying environmental issues we now face such a priority. I find it quite unbelievable though. It’s probably the most important thing for us to do now”.
Prince Charles also added: “The world had to be seen as joined up, integrated and the voices of the intuitive and the rational needed to be reconciled. There are steps taken in education to achieve this”.
“What we should is, rather than separating out the different subjects individually. A subject like the climatic changes becomes the subject of an enquiry of learning”.
“Also, I think that we simply cannot solve the problems we have caused by responding with a business as an usual approach. We rather take the conventional approach, which only compounds the problem”.
“What we have to do is to bounce forward by learning from the past. We have to look back again very seriously. At the philosophy of wholeness. As that held sway for so long in all the world’s great sacred traditions and rituals.
At the end of Prince Charles’ tour.
After the long debate, Prince Charles met Llandovery College’s head boy, Huw Richards Price. He then, showed him the vegetable and flower beds at the college. This also included a greenhouse made from plastic bottles.
