Earth Charter International Summit October 11, 2008

On October 11, 2008, people will gather in cities worldwide to discuss global climate change and to work together to address its effects on the local level. Earth Charter U.S. is coordinating the summits in celebration of U.N. International Year of Planet Earth. They are also underwriting the web connection among participating cities so that people will feel the global connection by being able to see and hear each other.

The Earth Charter is an international declaration of interdependence, created with input from people in 78 countries--a boldly optimistic statement of values and principles for a peaceful, caring, sustainable future.

Please join us on Saturday, October 11 at Portland Community College, Cascade Campus, Terrell Auditorium, 9:30am-1:00pm

*Watch presentations from people participating in Summits around the world *Climate Project presentation on global climate change by Jill Sughrue *Jules Kopel-Bailey, Democratic candidate for Oregon State Legislature

Learn from each other what we can do in our community to bring about real change!

Refreshments and information tables available for the duration.
