From the host

10.00 rendez-vous, photos for national media. 11.00 Climate Creative Discussion. 12.30 Picnic basket (bring your own and share). 14.00 Community Creative Discussion. . . . * . . .
On November 17th, we have a chance to do something about the impact of the human species on the planet, where it counts, at the community level. Climate change is extremely urgent, but you may be more concerned about species extinction, land degradation and sustainable agriculture, overfishing and coral reefs, or other interconnected ways we are destroying our planetary home. . . . * . . .
At 11.00, each person is invited to present their ideas in about 5 minutes to a small group. Then, while listening, silently and respectfully, be attentive to any idea which is new and important, to your own “flash of insight”. Collect “good ideas” and take these to another small group, and listen for their insights (bring a notebook and pencil). After further discussion, and then a picnic lunch, meet again in your group to explore ways any of these ideas can be activated in your own life, in your community, your workplace, etc. You will also discover a way you can continue this discussion process and participate more actively in your community through ‘Community Creative Discussion’ . . . . * . . .
Your ideas are important and will be listened to respectfully. “Insight” is the way you discover new ideas, and change. Our species needs to change, urgently, and change starts with the individual, with “me”! . . . * . . .
RSVP on this page to say you are coming. Wear bright clothes for a “global warming” photo. Hat and sunscreen for a day outdoors (indoors if raining), something to sit on. Bring a sign “Burra (or your town) wants climate action (or your preferred action)”. . . . * . . .
Read . This what we will do in Burra. For more details on global warming see: . . . . * . . .

Tell family and friends. This is our future. “I” am responsible.
