What’s your relationship with the planet?

Mission hosting an environmental Awaken and Change Symposium

Are you concerned about what is happening to our planet? Are you ready to create a different future for your family and the world?

Mission’s Be The Change Action Circle promises you a transformative educational experience on Saturday, May 27 at the Awaken and Change Symposium.

Co-hosted by Building Resilience In Mission (BRIM), this event will take place from 1 to 5:30 p.m. in the cafetorium at Heritage Park Middle School.

Facilitators from the non-profit Be The Change Earth Alliance will lead participants through a thought-provoking exploration of our relationship with the planet: Where are we? How did we get here? What is possible for the future? Where do we go from here?

The afternoon features cutting-edge information, interactive dialogue and audiovisual materials presenting the combined wisdom of such international luminaries as Julia Butterfly Hill, Paul Hawken, Brian Swimme, Maude Barlowe, Van Jones and Desmond Tutu.

Most importantly, participants will explore the many ways in which each of us can make a difference in our own lives and communities while having fun doing it.

The Earth Alliance envisions a world where people live in ways that are “ecologically sustainable, socially just and spiritually fulfilling.”

They have created an action guide to help people create “an empowered lifestyle to sustain your health, your spirit, and the planet.” Action guides will be available at the symposium.

Admission is free (donations are welcome) but advance registration is advised as space is limited.

For more information or to register for the event, please email bethechangemission@gmail.com.
