We acknowledge our differences, and share knowledge and understanding. We do this at a point in history when all nations urgently need to take action to heal the earth, stop climate change and through this sustain life itself on our planet. Through participation in this combined action, our desire for the world's leaders to take decisive action for positive change at Copenhagen and our indebtedness to the earth that sustains us is publicly acknowledged.
The speakers will be interspersed with time to reflect/ meditate/pray. Just come along, or it would be great if you can let me know if you can make it. Spread the word, harnessing our collective intentions will benefit from having as many of us as possible.
