Are you curious about and interested in environmentalism on the planetary scale? We want to understand the Earth's ecological systems -- from a non-technical perspective -- and the crises they are now undergoing.  We include climate change, species extinction, resource depletion, economic collapse, the collapse of civilizations, and the end of industrial society in our discussions.  We want to learn how we can live with global crises and support one another through the worst of times ahead since they are certain to impact all humanity!We want to connect with people who feel the same way -- that imminent ecological,  economic, and social collapse are important and necessitate that we understand the Earth and its sustainability requirements for life.


We normally expect to meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm.


We assume that Friends of Gaia meeting at Humanist Hall will be humanist-friendly people who enjoy scientific thinking.  We can show films and slides relating to these crises of Earth and humanity on our large movie screen. And we have worthy books and articles to read on this as well.  We encourage meetup participants to bring their own resources -- material, ideas, and experiences -- to share. Films and books that we would like to share and discuss will be readily understandable, not too technical. We will have round table discussions to communicate what we are learning and experiencing.  We want to integrate what we learn about the Earth with how we live our life in community with people and all life forms!


We are asking our Meetup participants to RSVP by the Monday before our Tuesday meetings -- if they want to RSVP -- and we are asking for a $5 donation per meeting.
