www.350.org.nz

Who are they?

350 Aotearoa is part of an international movement to unite the world around solutions to climate change Their mission is to inspire action in communities across New Zealand with a sense of unity, urgency and possibility in the face of the climate crisis. 350 Aotearoa is about using creativity and fun to tackle this most serious and pressing of challenges that we collectively face.

How can I get involved?

- Join a group: 350 have groups around the country (Wanaka, Dunedin, Chch, Nelson, Wellington, Hawkes Bay, Waikato, Auckland and Waiheke Island) working to organise actions for the 350 International Day of Climate Action being held on 24 October, 2009.

- Get your School involved!: On Friday October 23rd 2009, thousands of young New Zealanders will be taking a 350 school action, calling for a fair global climate treaty that meets the science and gets us back to 350ppm. We’re aiming for 350 schools nationwide to take part! All the information you and your school needs (including curriculum links) is contained in this 350 Schools Action Guide.

- Create an Action: Design and action, follow it through, then let 350 know and they’ll pop it in the Inspiration Bank on their site so that others can be inspired by your ideas!

Check out the 350 website to find out more and get involved now!

The Post-Petroleum Survival Guide and Cookbook: Recipes for Changing Times

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

By Richard Heinberg

swissarmyknifeThis book is like a Swiss army knife. Sharp. Simple. Very practical. Extremely useful. From Solar Heating to Sweet Potato Soup,  water-readiness to worms, and lollies made out of flowers. You can learn how to create walkable communities and/or become a medic-in-a hurry treating accidental electrocution. There is even a glossary of Surfspeak (useful I suppose for a beach disaster) and advice on how to loaf around more creatively. This book is especially designed to stand the test of time, and points out that the stone age didn’t come to an end through a lack of stones - that instead we moved on to a better, more creative, use of new technologies.

Take it Personally

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

take_photo1Anita Roddick of The Body Shop fame has created a work of art with this book, putting images and phrases together, such as, fashion and victim which show us how we have lost perspective of the real world.

Roddick has always tried to conduct business in a personal way, but has found that the business world is dominated by the faceless, and relentless advance of globalisation. This is a world of secret, impersonal committees, who do not take their social responsibilities seriously. The focus is on profit. Without more openness and democracy, she says, the world will be unable to deal with the serious crisis brought on us by globalisation.
