a fee-free seminar on global change
- I'm looking for at least 4 others who could meet weekly or bi-weekly
in the SDSU area who would be interested in participating in the
seminar described below. Others not in the SDSU area can form their
own local groups.
I see this as an opportunity to build community around a common
concern, and to learn methods of running a seminar.
If the description appeals to you, try to attend the next meeting of
the SD Ishmael group:
Wednesday, 12/14, 6-8pm 5900 El Cajon Blvd (Living Room Cafe)
( For more on Ishmael: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ishmael_(novel) )
and we can talk about this there. I may be in the back where it is
quieter and I'll have something florescent.
Here are the seminar URL and excerpts from the description:
"It's Your Move" is an Internet seminar (a workshop) for small groups.
The goal of the Seminar is:
(1) To widen the perspective of participants about global problems and
the human role in them,
(2) And to empower and motivate them to exert a more intentionally
positive influence on those communities, global and local, of which
they are a part.

Also, if anyone *besides me* wants to take the lead, we could talk, at
the meeting, about the possibility of a San Diego Urban Ecovillage.
