What kinds of events would you like to participate in?

A recent series, Ray Anderson Memorial Interview series, features twenty pioneers addressing issues of governance, climate change, the role of NGOs and other salient topics to include reinventing our economy. The one that rings in my ears is entitled, The Scarcest Resource is Time, ( and one of the speakers, David Suzuki says: "The sense of urgency is absolutely critical, I cannot stand to have just another meeting, where people come, do their thing, then leave as if back to the same old problem. There has to be a call we have an urgent crisis...the common problem is us." I want to participate in events that are asking how do we take what has been learned from Code Pink and the Act Up folks; what can our leaders from the indigenous community teach us about consciousness and the role of ceremony to bring heart and spirit into our meetings and actions; how can we celebrate the changes made by individuals and promote them as role models?

Do you have a special interest or topic that you might be willing to share with the group?

I am always available to increase awareness of the voices of sustainability expanding our consciousness of our citizens from around the world and through special collections such as culture and consciousness, transforming our economy, and artists & musicians. Most of us are familiar with ten or twenty sustainability advocates, our stars, but there are hundreds and many of them you rarely hear from in the press or in workshops.
