Why participate?

We have had a summer marked by heat, smoke and fire. Also by the most dire findings yet from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

“Major climate changes inevitable and irreversible – IPCC’s starkest warning yet”

“Report warns temperatures likely to rise by more than 1.5C bringing widespread extreme weather”

The Guardian online, Aug. 9, 2021

So why participate in Earth Jam 2021?

  • Participate because it might open a way for you to be permeable both to the emergency of our time and also to what is emerging. 
  • Participate because it might be a place where you become part of a growing generative community.  
  • Participate in Earth Jam 2021 not because of what it is, but because of what it could be, because of what we might be birthing.  

The events and offerings of Earth Jam 2021 are just the tablecloth, the table settings, the salads, casseroles and brownies creating the space for life and liveliness, relationship, imagination and possibility; all are to be welcomed, all are to be met with curiosity and openness, all are to be listened to.

So, I don’t know why you, specifically, should participate in Earth Jam 2021, but I do know your participation will make all the difference in the world.

We live in a time requiring much change in how we eat and drink, work and play, in how we make our lives in this planet. We want to be part of the flow of that change and not part of the resistance.

Why might you participate in Earth Jam 2021?
