There were 600 attendees, people from all walks of life, and from all over Ontario, and Canada and the world.
This was a life changing event, not just because I got to hear Al Gore speak so brilliantly on the issue of climate change.
But because I got to meet so many amazing people. Inspiring people. So called 'ordinary' people, like you or me, who are taking action on climate change and a wide variety of environmental issues.
At this conference, there was a moment when were encouraged to share 'our stories' at our table groups, stories about how we came to interested in environmental action, how we came to be at the conference.
After the conference, I got inspired by this, thinking:
Wouldn't it be cool if...I could interview this diverse group of interesting people and document those moments of 'green awakening'?
Was there a catalyst? A defining moment? What caused that inner shift inside? How did they move from a state of complacency to one of action?
How inspiring to read about people making changes in their life!
That is the basis of this online anthology.
Who are the people fighting for the protection of our home, our planet?
I'd like you to drop by this site and meet them!
