Hello everyone, Luke here from the podcast “Yellow of the Egg” and from the Hernalser Gymnasium Geblergasse. I just wanted to congratulate you on your initiative with the tree project. It’s a wonderful and important thing to be doing, to be standing up for these values – humanity, democracy, human rights and sustainability. These represent the foundation of a society where we can all truly live in peace with one another.

In my work in my podcast, I have had the opportunity to learn more about many other people and other cultures beyond my own. By being open to learning about each other and by embracing diversity, we can allow for empathy and for mutual respect, which are essential in order to uphold these values of humanity, democracy and human rights. And as for sustainability, realistically we only have this one planet, and we have to share it. While we all really do have our own homes individually too, one thing that connects us all is that we all share this one home, this one planet. And so, in order to be able to respect each other, we have to respect our planet, our shared home. Which is why it’s so important that we have initiatives such as these.

So thank you for your work, good luck moving forward, and congratulations on making this happen.
