This Awakening the Dreamer Symposium is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley and the Pachamama Alliance. To help us get into action, we are inviting members of local groups working on climate change and related environmental issues to staff tables to present their work and their materials. Participants will be able to visit the groups at their tables when the doors open at 11:30am until the program begins, during a short break, and afterwards until about 4:30pm. Please come no later than noon so we can all be in our seats to begin soon afterwards.
We hope many UUCB members will join us, as well as members of the larger community. For those newly concerned about climate change, environmental devastation, and social injustice, as well as for those who have been active for years, this Symposium will offer an opportunity to honestly face the painful facts about these issues with like-minded, caring people. In loving community, we will think about what role each of us might play to bring about needed change. In community, we will support one another's constructive actions to address these inter-related issues. We will join together with ever-growing numbers of caring, aware human beings who are committed to act--to do our parts--to heal our world for people everywhere, for future generations, and for the beloved species that share our planet.
We'll have healthy snacks available, but you may want to have lunch before you come. We recommend bringing a water bottle. The event will be free, but we depend on your generous donations at the door to support this work.
