Young adults gathering to develop their vision and plan for future of Earth
Here is an big opportunity for students in the Washington DC
area -- or who can get here. We feel this could be a mind changing, life
changing, and even Earth changing event.
On Saturday Aug. 11 in
Arlington, Virginia, a group of young adults is convening an inter-generational
"Earth 2100 Conference: What's the Plan!?" It will be a working
conference at which people meet and work in small groups to develop (1) a vision
of the Earth young people would like to inherit, (2) changes young people would
like to see made to bring us closer to their vision, and (3) a plan for a
larger, more influential conference in 2013. Summaries of major proposals for
change from UN, World Bank, NGOs, etc. are being collected and summarized in
advance of the conference.
Details: August 11, 2012, 10 AM to 4:30 PM.
Location: Auditorium, Central Library, 1015 N Quincy St., Arlington VA 22201,
USA. Cost: Free, including lunch. (A donation of $30 would be
appreciated, but is not required.) Space is limited, so please register now at
Flyer and news release attached. Conference will be streamed for remote
participation. Further details at http://www.ourtask.org/programs/earth-2100-conference-2/.
