I'm prone to exaggeration, but not this time!
On October 24th, in over 120 nations around the world, hundreds of thousands of creative people will be engaged in actions as part of Bill McKibben's 350.org Day of Global Action.
I'm thinking you may be interested. I'm badly hoping you ARE interested:
This is not only the largest creative effort, October 24 is also the largest POLITICAL DAY OF ACTION IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANITY As our global leaders (Obama included) have failed us when it comes to environmental reform, it's up to The People to force the issue, to advance the agenda in the days leading up to Copenhagen (UN Climate Conference).
What is 350.org? Visit the site. Check it out. http://www.350.org
Why are Creatives the center of the movement? Because we are the ones who can advance agendas, change minds, push entire populations to action--not politicians, nor armies.
In New Zealand, Maori tribes will be hanging banners from cliffs. Church bells all along the coast will ring 350 times. In China, over 200 groups will be crafting their unique messages. In the United States, tens of thousands will assemble. In Africa, Yeman, all over Europe...all over the world....October 24 is the largest global day of action we've ever seen.
Get involved. Be part of the solution. I have faith in you, fellow creatives, but not humanity unless you take up the challenge to lead your fellows.
