Fourteen days of demonstrating what can happen when people get together to make difference in the world, is on the agenda at the Findhorn Foundation Community People’s Earth Summit, taking place while world leaders gather in Johannesburg for the World Summit meeting.
Organiser Barbara Faro commented: “We are one of a large number of communities worldwide to answer the call of community groups in South Africa, to create ‘Ten Global Days of Creative Local Action’. The aim is to build a critical mass of people, joining together to turn the tide towards sustainable living on our planet, and demonstrate a deep form of democracy. It’s a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the many encouraging initiatives that are already underway in our local area, and to create momentum for new projects leading to sustainability in Moray.”
The diversity of people sharing information and inspiration in the Findhorn People’s Earth Summit include a Healthy Living Day, an Alternative Transport morning, talks on recycling and alternative building, work trips to Wester Lawrenceton organic dairy farm, a Peace Prayer Ceremony and an Interfaith Service.
The event coincides with the gathering of world leaders in Johannesburg for the World Summit meeting where representatives of United Nations non-governmental organisations are also gathered, including Findhorn Foundation Community representatives Jonathan Dawson, May East and Roger Doudna.
