We are 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 with climate change. 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 require that we seek to understand the Earth and its sustainability requirements for life.
We normally expect to meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month from around 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
We assume that Friends of Earth Awareness meeting at Humanist Hall will be humanist-friendly people who enjoy scientific thinking. We show films and slides relating to climate change on our large movie screen and our smaller screen as well. And we have worthy books and articles to read on these issues too, of course. We encourage Meetup participants to bring their own resources -- materials, ideas, and experiences -- to share. Films and books that participants would like to share and discuss should be readily understandable, not too technical. We have round table discussions to communicate what we are learning and experiencing. We want to integrate what we learn about the Earth and humanity with how we live our lives in community with people and all the other life forms!
We are asking our Meetup participants to RSVP if possible -- and we are asking for a $5 donation per Meetup.
