what is heliotropy?
Helio - a combining form meaning “sun,” originating from the Greek hḗlios
-tropy - the state of turning in a specified way from a specified stimulus, originating from the Greek tropos "a turn, change"
Heliotropy is a phenomenon in nature where certain plants (or parts, like sunflowers) grow in response to the stimulus of sunlight, so that they turn to face the sun. This is not about ignoring the urgent and deeply entrenched problems facing our world - but about acknowledging them, and setting a positive trajectory to create solutions, together.
