Hi All!

With the approach of the 2015 United Nations Climate Conference in Paris, scheduled to start in a couple of weeks (Nov. 30th), an opportunity for the global community to collectively communicate a message of hope, peace, and support for rapid and equitable progress towards a fossil-free future has presented itself.

Global Climate March: the weekend of November 28th (the two days prior to the conference), "people everywhere are coming together for two weeks of action calling for climate justice and an end to carbon pollution. There are going to be thousands of events around the world culminating in a mass mobilisation in Paris on Dec 12th" (the day after the conference ends).

Types of events include: marches, rallies, and candlelight vigils (such as the one scheduled in Missoula on Nov. 29th) is where you can search for events near your location. has additional information about the purpose and the specific goals of this action (scroll towards the bottom: under "what we hope to achieve in Paris").

I know we all like our individual solutions, because we're always working hard on them, but collective action can be a helpful boost, especially when we are talking about influencing the behaviors of large for-profit corporations.

If nothing else, it's a good excuse to spend more time out in the fresh air and get to know other like-minded people in your area. Maybe we can even educate a few people who have never heard of permaculture!

I hope to see some fellow permies representing (with some pro-permaculture signage) in at least a few of the 2150+ events scheduled worldwide...
