WHAT ABOUT: The future by Juan Antonio Melé

‘The art should be as important as education, math or grammar, because it develops our emotional capacity’.

He left his position as regional director in the savings bank where he had worked 30 years to embark on a new project: Triodos Bank, a Dutch bank created in 1980 whose main objective is to help build a more human and sustainable society. The bank invests in development cooperation, technology applied to the environment, fair trade and socially responsible companies, and never in snuff, weapons or nuclear energy, for example. And Juan Antonio speaks about things so shocking coming from a banker as love, spirituality, art or freedom.
