Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 8:00 PM AT L.A. Eco-Village

YASTEL YAMADA, FOUNDER OF THE SKILLED VETERANS CORPS FOR FUKUSHIMA,
GIVES A TALK ON THE CURRENT CRISIS IN FUKUSHIMA AND THE CHALLENGES
TO US ALL.

The Skilled Veterans Corps are skilled elderly people prepared
to give their lives to the clean-up effort.

Yastel and his associate "Tak" Okamoto are in the U.S. to promote this
controversial, yet courageous proposal. Essentially, the SVCF is
calling on the Japanese government and the Tokyo Energy Power Company
(TEPCO), owners of the dangerously crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear
power plant, to permit retired, senior citizens with technical
experience and know-how to be allowed immediately to contribute to the
clean-up efforts at the plant, effectively putting their lives on the
front lines in the battle to contain this unfolding disaster.

In addition, the distinguished gentlemen from the SVCF are calling for
the TEPCO to relinquish its leadership role in the crisis clean-up and
turn the project over to an "International Inspection Team" with a
"centralized and unified Project Management". The members of the SVCF
argue that the crisis at the Fukushima nuclear power plant is too great
for one corporation, with their fiduciary responsibilities to their
shareholders, to protect the nation and the world from the real and
potential dangers.

With Southern California Edison still planning to re-open San Onefre,
we still have much work to do to prevent such a potentially disastrous
energy direction.

Reservations required:  crsp <at> igc.org or 213/738-1254 (space limited)

Donations requested (no one turned away for lack of funds)

[Urban All List] The Good the Bad and the Other at Rio+20

Dear ecovillage friends and colleagues,

I am attaching my reflections and conclusions on my experience in Rio last month. It is a little long, but I hope that you will find it informative and relevant. It also is in two parts that cover the official conference and the People's Summit separately.

Please help to post it on our news sites, publications and wherever you see it to be relevant for diffusion. I don't have a regular blog where I might post it otherwise.

Thanks,

Gio

A United Nations NGO representative and former board member of United for a
Fair Economy, Alanna serves on the Advisory Counsel of the Prout Research
Institute of Venezuela and is a senior associate of the Robert Schalkenbach
Foundation. Her work for new economics grew out of her search for
understanding root causes of poverty and war.
Wendell Fitzgerald holds a law degree and for several years worked inside a
major corporation. His experiences and observations led to his involvement
with new paradigm economics. He currently serves as President of the Henry
George School of Social Science of Northern California. Of primary interest
to him is how economics can be returned to its rightful place as guide to
securing basic needs for all, including the need for fulfillment of what
Abraham Maslow called "the further reaches of human nature."

this series is for you!
As caretakers of earth, how do we evolve away from just surviving 
To environmental and social justice, to actively sustaining the web of life?
How do we move from competition to true co-operation?
Is there a middle path between the extremes of capitalism and communism? 
Is there a path that encompasses the needs of All?
How can earth's wealth be fairly and more equitably shared?
How can I make a difference in the world?
How can I heal economic ruptures of poverty and insecure employment?

Hi Folks,

The Gaia Home event at Rio+20 was a huge success for GEN, Gaia Education and
the Brazilian network that organized it. Especially Terra Una, who are an
impressive group of can-do young activists grounded in the arts, ecology and
sustainability education.

I am forwarding the report they sent out to their crowdfunding contributors.
It is in Portuguese, but a translation app should give you the broad strokes
of its contents. Otherwise the pictures tell the story rather well.

Thanks for your support and participation in this ground braking event.

Gio

Caso você ainda não tenha pegado a sua caneca, esta ficará disponível na
casa da Erian Ozório, localizada na Rua Almirante Alexandrino 356 apto 101,
no bairro Santa Teresa, no Rio de Janeiro. Entre em contato pelo telefone 21
2221 5202 para verificar se haverá alguém em casa para entregá-la. Erian
estará em Terra Una nos próximos dias e, sendo assim, provavelmente a partir
do dia 23 de julho ficará mais fácil encontrá-la em casa.


Caso você não seja do Rio de Janeiro, veja se tem um familiar ou amigo que
possa buscar sua caneca na casa da Erian.


Caso não seja possível, podemos enviá-la por correio. Pedimos, contudo, que
os custos de envio sejam arcados por você :-) Os benfeitores de Belo
Horizonte podem responder esta mensagem solicitando que a equipe do Educação
Gaia que estará na cidade em agosto leve a sua caneca.


Receba a nossa gratidão por sua generosidade e confiança no trabalho.


Acreditamos que o Gaia Home cumpriu seu objetivo de ser um ponto de
integração entre redes comunitárias, servindo de núcleo de intercâmbio de
tecnologias e troca de saberes, expandindo o alcance dos princípios e
valores da sustentabilidade difundidos pelo programa Educação Gaia através
de atividades junto ao público geral: vivências, oficinas, workshops,
minicursos, práticas de saúde, atividades culturais, em uma programação
aberta e gratuita.


Sigamos juntos neste caminho de transformação na direção de modos de vida
sadios em uma cultura de paz.


Fraternalmente,


Equipe Terra Una

muitas lições. Com esta mensagem trazemos nosso pedido de compreensão pela
certa demora em encaminhar a questão das recompensas para os benfeitores,

O dinheiro caiu há poucos dias em nossa conta e agora podemos fazer o acerto
com todos(as).

Co-hosts:

Alanna Hartzok is Co-Director of Earth Rights Institute and author of The Earth Belongs to Everyone, recipient of the 2008 Radical Middle Book Award. A United Nations NGO representative and former board member of United for a Fair Economy, Alanna serves on the Advisory Counsel of the Prout Research Institute of Venezuela and is a senior associate of the Robert Schalkenbach Foundation. Her work for new economics grew out of her search for understanding root causes of poverty and war.

Wendell Fitzgerald holds a law degree and for several years worked inside a major corporation. His experiences and observations led to his involvement with new paradigm economics. He currently serves as President of the Henry George School of Social Science of Northern California. Of primary interest to him is how economics can be returned to its rightful place as guide to securing basic needs for all, including the need for fulfillment of what Abraham Maslow called "the further reaches of human nature."

REGISTER HERE for Sustainable Economics for the 21st Century

Preparation for each session includes readings, videos, weblinks and online course modules. You will receive details for each of the five sessions upon registration.

If you have asked even one of the following questions of yourself or others, this series is for you!

As caretakers of earth, how do we evolve away from just surviving

To environmental and social justice, to actively sustaining the web of life?

How do we move from competition to true co-operation?

Is there a middle path between the extremes of capitalism and communism?

Is there a path that encompasses the needs of All?

How can earth's wealth be fairly and more equitably shared?

How can I make a difference in the world?

How can I heal economic ruptures of poverty and insecure employment?

What are green taxes and resource rent?

What is the significance of "earned" vs "unearned" income?

These questions and more will be fully addressed in the Sustainable Economics for the 21st Century Teleseminar Series!

Subject: [ENA ALL] Fwd: [GEN UN] Gaia Home Report from the organizers
 

Hi Folks,

The Gaia Home event at Rio+20 was a huge success for GEN, Gaia Education and the Brazilian network that organized it. Especially Terra Una, who are an impressive group of can-do young activists grounded in the arts, ecology and sustainability education.

I am forwarding the report they sent out to their crowdfunding contributors. It is in Portuguese, but a translation app should give you the broad strokes of its contents. Otherwise the pictures tell the story rather well.

Thanks for your support and participation in this ground braking event.

Gio

Prezado(a) amigo(a) benfeitor(a),

Com muita satisfação entramos em contato com você que nos apoiou em nossa campanha de financiamento colaborativo para realizar o Gaia Home na Cúpula dos Povos.

Estamos encaminhando, em anexo, um relato fotográfico da realização do Gaia Home no Parque do Flamengo, entre os dias 16 e 23 de junho de 2012, para aproximar quem não pôde estar presente fisicamente e criar memória destes dias especiais que vivemos em comunidade.

Em nossa lista consta que você escolheu uma caneca como recompensa. Caso você já tenha recebido a sua, desconsidere os procedimentos dos próximos três parágrafos.

[Urban All List] A message from Rio+20

Dear Networkers,

I copy here the link to Uruguay's president Pepe Mujia's speech at the closing of Rio+20. He summarizes the global problem in a way that aligns the ecovillage movement with the global political urgency, and perhaps puts his finger on the issue that most divides our nations and progress towards sustainability for all. With thanks to Daniel Wahl for sending it.

Please pass it around to your lists, and when appropriate use it as a talking point in your discussions about Rio+20.
