Event Description

Jan Spencer returns to Bellingham! Sponsored by Transition Whatcom, RE Sources for Sustainable Communities, and Sustainable Bellingham. 7pm on Friday March 5th at Sustainable Living Center above the RE Store.

Global Trends - Local Choices is a timely, practical and humane call for personal empowerment and action, given the current state of our economic system, culture, natural environment and world.

GTLC recognizes the global trends that challenge us are all symptoms of deeper issues. GTLC put its focus on those deeper issues - ourselves, culture, economics and our communities.

GTLC is action oriented - describing choices and strategies people can make at home, in their neighborhoods and communities that can mitigate virtually all the challenges we face at the same time. There are enormous opportunities to create positive outcomes, in these changing times, that require no permission beyond ourselves.

The presentation is philosophical, practical and passionate while offering many visual images and descriptions of real life pioneers of eco logical culture change. GTLC affirms that virtually all the assets, models and tools for creating a healthy and peaceful world already exist. Its simply a matter of the choices we make.

Not to be missed for changing sub-urban into "eco-urban".
No fee charged as I can tell.
Jan comes up from Eugene...mmmm....I wonder who's garden he is going to graze for nourishment in! Sorry I'll miss his talk!
