The 80 year-old Pierre Rabhi, is a French writer, farmer and environmentalist. Originally a Muslim he later converted to Christianity before finally leaving religion altogether. He is an important personality of agroecology in France and beyond. He created the concept of “Oasis in any place”. Rabhi proposes a society operating in a way that respects people, animals and land, supporting the development of agricultural techniques that safeguard the environment while protecting natural resources.
According to Pierre Rabhi, the ethical question on how we can reconcile humanity with nature requires us to think intelligently about life, to act conscientiously and cooperatively. The beauty of life and nature must re-emerge, sparking joy and wonder and fostering change in the world. He advocates a paradigm shift, one where humanity and nature are the central focus.
He reminds us that if humans themselves don’t change, they won’t be able to change the world in any sustainable manner. He offers a vision of a simpler, happier lifestyle, one that has deference for the planet’s limitations.
The time for simplicity, sobriety, and no-growth or degrowth of material production is now!
“Agriculture should be the first health activity, the farmer must precede the doctor.”Pierre Rabhi
