The Revolutionn is On! USGBC 2008

Revolutionary Green

Join us at the U.S. Green Building Council’s Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Boston November 19-21, 2008. Boston is the historic cradle of the American Revolution and home to innovations that have far-reaching impact. It is the perfect place to celebrate Greenbuild 2008’s theme of “Revolutionary Green: Innovations for Global Sustainability.”

So in terms of all this ark and eco stuff, where do I start?
Think global, act local. You’ve heard it but are you doing it. Best thing is to connect with your local Transition Town network, if one doesent exist, start one off. Its exploding and bound to hit your town soon, in 2 years its exploded, ie see Europe below. for more info, audios, films etc see itsafunnyoldworld.wordpress.com

AND, lets not forget what momentous event has just happened in the US, a Black man, Barack Hussein Obama, will be the next president of the USA, it might not deliver all we want, right here, right now, but its a huge step.

President-elect Barack Hussein Obama recorded a message for the Global Climate Summit, promising “a new chapter of American leadership on climate change.”
