In 2019, the Ecocentre will celebrate its five years. It's still early childhood because at
the image of the man, the ecocentre will take time to reveal itself in its fullness. But already, we can
to perceive in what emerges particular traits, indications of what will be the place later.

Finally, to inspire you and better understand the vocation of the ecocentre, let us quote Bertrand Vergely in his book "Return to wonder" which includes two words from medieval thinkers that resonate well with life at the ecocenter: transitivity and 'eminence.

that he is doing something that he is. Eminence refers to the encounter between the full and the empty, or the encounter between concrete existence and the ineffable, a bond of which all traditions speak and which gives existence its meaning and beauty.
