10/10 Global Work Party


Dear Friends of Hancock County Transition Towns: 

          On Sunday, October 10, 2010, Hancock County Transition Towns,  Alliance for Democracy , League of Women Voters Downeast,Unitarian Universalist Church of Ellsworth  Adult Religious Education Committee, Peace and Social Action Committee, Peninsula Peace & Justice, and Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Castine have joined forces to celebrate The 10/10/10 Global Work Party.  This event is being coordinated by the international climate campaign 350.org and 10:10 Global.  350.org is an international campaign that’s building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis–the solutions that science and justice demand.  Their mission is to inspire the world to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis—to create a new sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet. 

           Starting at 11:45AM at the Unitarian Church on the Bucksport Road in Ellsworth we will be showing two short films.  With over 12 million on-line views, The Story of Stuff is one of the most widely viewed environmental-themed short films of all time.  The Story of Stuff takes you on a provocative tour of our consumer-driven culture–from resource extraction to iPod incineration.   This 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of production, consumption, and waste will teach you something, make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all your stuff.  A local video produced by students in the Blue Hill area (Lucy Jakub, Imogene Page, Lorna Stephens and Max Hurvitt) called “Save my Polar Bear, Please” will also be shown.  Following the films, there will be a visual awareness opportunity on the bridge in Ellsworth. 

 Hancock County Transition Towns is committed to educating our community about the changes happening to our planet and how we can become sustainable by building resiliency locally. 

 

What Can You Do?  All you have to do is show up and perhaps bring a friend Please attend the films and then join us on the bridge. Learn, share, and show your support for Planet Earth!
