Awaken the Dreamer, Changing the Dream environmental symposium invitation‏

Later this year, Transition Kenmore will be helping run one of these locally but for anyone who can't wait here are the details of the next symposium this weekend.

"Many of us are likely to experience the effects of global climate disruption during our lifetime as well as be impacted by the economic consequences of dwindling resources consumed by our current way of life. What can we do? Well, there is exciting, grass roots, social/political/ecological movement gaining momentum around the world that you can participate in.

The Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium aims to help create an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just human presence on the planet by helping people learn more about the world, to come to grips with the very assumptions that underlie the way we see the world and what each of us can do, individually and cooperatively – to move the world in a new direction. It connects us into a global group of people who are informed and optimistic about creating a new possibility for our modern world and who are galvanised to take action for healthy and sustainable future. We do this not only for ourselves; we do it for present and future generations—for the benefit of all children, of all species."

The Symposium will be held on:
From 10am to 4.30pm
At the Brisbane Bridge Centre, 104 Frederick St, Annerley
(the old Annerley Bowls club in the Yeronga Memorial Park)

"Using video clips from some of the world’s most respected thinkers, captivating short films, and dynamic group interactions, the Symposium guides participants in gaining new insights into the challenges we face and the opportunities we have to impact the direction of our future with our everyday choices and action.

I encourage you to come, to invite your family and friends, your co-workers. Come to be inspired and moved to action, come to be part of a community of deeply committed individuals worldwide who are actively engaged in helping people wake up and begin changing the dream of our modern industrial culture, or come to simply find out what its about.

There is plenty of free parking and it is also very convenient to public transport – either by bus along Ipswich road (there are several express buses from the city that stop about 400m away), or by train on the Beenleigh-Ferny Grove line, stopping at the Yeronga station about 700m away."

The cost is $20 per person, half price for full time students, unemployed and pensioners – and no one will be turned away – we simply ask that you make a small donation. Maximum cost per family is $50.

**** Please bring some food to share for lunch and morning and afternoon tea will be provided.

*** NOTE: We would appreciate if you could email either
Fiona – or
James – and advise how many are coming so we have an idea of numbers.

The Symposium is run by Be the Change Australia.
