No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
[ … ]
Any man’s death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
Welcome to BetterTogether, an online platform conceived to unite and inspire people.
When it comes to acknowledging facing the world’s current issues, I realize it can quickly become a bit overwhelming, and that it is difficult to know where to start to make a difference.
I believe that the change starts within every single individual, through small but meaningful actions that don’t even imply great sacrifices.
I also know it can sometimes feel lonely to undertake these actions, if the people surrounding us don’t understand or are not willing to do the same. That’s what we are here for.
I am a part-time solo-traveller, and a part time student. Through my travels, I want to focus and learn about what unites us all, despite all of our differences. This has inspired me in so many ways, and I want to share some of it with you.
BetterTogether will constantly suggest you new ideas of what you can do to make this world a better place, whether it is on an environmental, social or any other level, through our weekly challenges. The idea is that we all take up the same challenges together, so that we can share our experiences and feel supported in our actions towards a better world.
I will regurlarly share a new inspiring story of people who are actively participating in creating a better future for everyone, in the categorie “Their stories”.
Besides that, in the categorie “Sowanders” I will also talk about some of the lessons I get to experience in my traveller’s life and show you some of the wonders I come across. You can use it as a reminder of how amazingly beautiful this planet and its people are.
Feel free to participate in any challenge that inspires you and to then share your story with us. You can do that here or through our facebook group. Every week, I will write an article to present the best stories you send me, and share it here and on our facebook page, hoping to reach as many people as possible to convert to our cause.
And it starts with you! Are you ready to take up the challenge? It starts here.
Also, don’t hesitate to give me any kind of feedback. It will be greatly appreciated.
Have fun with BetterTogether!
