Join the Global Work Party on 10/10/10

October 10, 2010 is coming this Sunday. 10-10-10, an auspicious date, has been adopted for a “Global Work Party” by the organization Their website says “We’re calling it a Global Work Party, with emphasis on both 'work' and 'party'.”

I know of two 10-10-10 events in the Milwaukee area, one on the east side and one in Wauwatosa. Both are family friendly. There may be others. I hope you’ll join me to do something for the environment on Sunday.

At the Wauwatosa Lion’s Club:

Cookies for a Cooler Climate
Make and arrange cookes, write letters, network, brainstorm, and energize! Rhythm for Unity will provide a drum circle to help with the engergizing. This one is very kid friendly!

Sunday, October 10 from 2 – 5:30
No admission fee.
For a full schedule and directions go to Cookies for a Cooler Climate.

At the Urban Ecology Center:
10/10/10 Tour with Ken
Join Executive Director Ken Leinbach’s “Global Work Party” tour and clean-up of the newly protected Milwaukee River Basin. Inspired by author Bill McKibben’s “Global Work Party” invitation to communities around the world to understand and work toward solutions to protect the environment, Ken is sure to inspire. Tour includes: 5-10 mile hike depending on how far we get, a clean-up service project along the way and an environmental conversation focused on action. Come dressed for the weather.
