  1. As a 27 year resident of Ossining AND someone interested in environmental issues, I thought I should pass on to you the information about The Green World Campaign, (greenworld.org) an organization that “works to reforest our planet, raise the living standards of the rural poor, and combat global climate change.” Perhaps you can utilize these two aspects of their work at your event on the 18th:

    1) Greenworld has created a game called “Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest.” It can be found at:
    http://www.compassiongames.org.

    2) Below is a charter for their interfaith initiative that will be presented at the World Parliament of Religions in October. You might want to get the town/village/citizens to sign on. It’s quite exciting! If you give me an email address, I can send you a PDF version with a lovely picture

    If you have further questions about the material or the organization, contact Marc Barasch, Founder and Director of The Greenworld Campaign, and author of the book, The Compassionate Life.

    GREEN WORLD CHARTER to Renew the Tree of Life
    (Composed by Marc Ian Barasch, author, The Compassionate Life, Founder, Green World Campaign)

    We were born in a primordial Garden, cradled by the Tree of Life. For untold eons, trees have patiently nurtured us and all creatures.
    Their roots extend deep in the human soul, and nourish the soil from which they and we draw sustenance. They bring the rains on which all depend, and create the very air we breathe.
    They stand as living monuments to the faith that shall not be moved. Their branches reach heavenward, yielding sweet fruit and fertile seed, sheltering all without prejudice and with unfailing mercy.
    But today the Tree of Life is dying of our carelessness and neglect. We sorrow to behold vast areas of our world where the diversity of nature and the vitality of community are daily harder to sustain.
    We cannot stand idly by while our hands hold the power to turn ravaged land green, and so relieve the poverty and hunger of our brothers and sisters in barren places.
    There is something stirring within each of us, within the human family, as within a seed that needs only light and water and care to grow. We resolve now to renew the sacred Tree of Life.
    We pledge to plant new seeds of spirit in the real soil of this world. May each burst forth as a resurgence of hope, a message to children yet unborn that we were mindful of their coming, that we stewarded for them a green and peaceful planet and kept faith with their future.
    We commit to restoring the injured landscapes that cry out for healing. We vow to grow billions of trees, defend our precious natural systems, and protect our climate. We promise to renew the
    ecology and economy of the world’s poorest places. We know in our hearts the truth of the proverb: Compassion is planting that seedling under whose shade we may never sit. We believe if we start small and dream big, plant firm a great intention and care for it with diligence and love, myriad of life’s marvels will rise from the good earth to welcome the generations who will follow.

      We’d love to read more about it but it may be too much for us to consider for this weekend’s Festival. Tying up loose ends with all the plans that have been on the works for months.
