Worldchanging Tour: Minneapolis

For those who don't know, WorldChanging is one of my favorite websites and a real inspiration when it comes to environmental/sustainability activism. The writers at WorldChanging have, for several years, been presenting countless stories that highlight the dangers of environmental inbalance — but more importantly, their site brings even more stories of solutions, both those already in use and those that we could be seeing in coming years.

They have a book coming out in a few days that has hundreds of pages of stories, solutions, ideas, etc. for overcoming the slew of environmental challenges we face. Its topics range from green design to smart growth, from clean energy to sustainable agriculture, from women's rights to corporate responsibility. The book features a forward by Al Gore and an introduction by noted futurist/sci-fi author Bruce Sterling. And now they're going on a book tour.

Minneapolis is one of the dozen or so cities they'll be visiting. I'll be heading over to their event in northeast Minneapolis on the 8th. Let me know if you're interested in joining me in meeting up with others interested in positive solutions for sustainable societies.

November 8th: MINNEAPOLIS - Event at Kingman Studios Doors at 7:00; program at 8:00 1901 Grand St. NE Minneapolis, MN 55418 USA
