You have wandered through history, from the beginning to the end,
you have seen humans increase in number, and witnessed how they exploit nature,
with better and better tools, in search of greater riches.
Today we stand at the crossroads,
at the brink of what the earth can tolerate.
The road to the future passes through your daily life.
The easy road passes through the valley of short sighted abundance,
the other road through reflection and responsibility.
The choice is yours.

Quotation from the exhibition “Langsomt ble landet vårt eget” at Maihaugen, the folk museum in Lillehammer.
