It is now generally recognised that some degree of climate change on Earth will happen due to human activity over the next few years, within this century and beyond. Whether that climate change becomes dangerous, to the extent that it threatens life on this planet of ours, (the only one we have!), depends upon us ALL. To avoid dangerous climate change requires us ALL acting responsibly in time. We HAVE TO change from actions we strongly suspect, (and most scientists are even willing to say 'we know' -) are causing average global temperature to rise.
Since the Earth reacts slowly and takes time to change, many of us seemingly appear unaware of the urgency to stop doing or dramatically reduce many of the causative actions fuelling climate change.
Our modern lifestyles and culture seem to make us blind to the changes, in the natural world, that we are causing.
On Friday 8th August, 2008 (8-8-8) the day that the Olympic games start in Bejing, China, there will be a little free event (with children's mini olympics included) starting in Churchdown, Gloucestershire.
This is a 'Save our planet' day event. It consists of an afternoon 'Footprints Family Fun-day' followed by an after work evening of talks and practical advice with audio visual media. It is taking place at St. Andrew's Church Centre and Churchdown Rec. between 12 noon and 6 pm for the afternoon event and 7 pm to approx. 9.30 pm for the evening event.
The event is free to all and contains practical help and advice to actually do something that counts in our fight to tackle the causes of climate change due to human activity, whether that be by our direct actions or joining with others in the organisations putting pressure on our governments and corporations to act. It's in all of our interest to do this.
Remember this event is free. Entertain your children for free this school holiday.
The purpose of this event is to encourage people to get actively involved in changing habits to tackle client change. Insufficient people are doing enough, in time, to avoid dangerous climate change. This event shows us how to go about effective action, simply and speedily. Don't miss it!
Changing life-style, to ensure our planet survives, can be fun! Please join in. The World and your family need it! .
