Filed under: Activities in the Highlands,Apr May Jun,General Interest Newsy Stuff — Sally at 1:55 pm on Friday, March 28, 2008

Another event sponsored by the Gaia Centre in the Haliburton Highlands, Ontario Canada.

It’s a Question of Direction CLIMATE CHANGE – MEETING THE CHALLENGE
Thursday, April 24, 7 – 9, Gratitude Donation
Will take place at the Haliburton Fish Hatchery – 66712 Gelert Rd Haliburton Ontario Canada
Suggested donation $15

The presenter is Mike Nickerson, Canadian Author of Life, Money, & Illusion; Living on Earth As If We Want To Stay

Mike challenges us to imagine not only a society
• where the needs of all are met without depreciating the environment,
• where speculative capitol serves real need,
• where nations and regions have the ability to make decisions in the interest of their people and the environment that supports them, but to believe it’s possible to live secure, healthy lives for countless generations. We can do it, he says. The challenge is to remember we are a tremendously gifted species. Then we will be able to identify the direction in which we need to move today. Taking the challenge will be Alice Miller -Patient News, Carolyn Coburn, EH, and Andy Campbell, HCDC.
