Daring to Hope at the Cliff’s Edge: An Active Hope webinar:

The Work that Reconnects, based on the teachings of Eco-Buddhist Philosopher, Joanna Macy, follows a spiral of practices that can help us meet the crisis of our times. In this 90-minute webinar, eco-poet Elizabeth Glenn-Copeland and environmental scientist, Lee Penny will engage our imaginations through poetry and discussion.

About Tantramar Climate Change Week

Climate Change Week started in winter 2013 and has been popular ever since! Climate Change Week is an opportunity to celebrate solutions that exist and to remind ourselves to take action and to adapt to the changes we are already experiencing. It’s a time to learn more about climate change issues and how we can take personal measures at home, work and school. EOS would also like to see more communities and organizations take part in Climate Change Week. Our guide will help you organize and promote events in your community:  How to guide to Climate Change Week.
