Are you concerned about what is happening to our planet?  Are you ready to create a different future for your family and the world?

Mission’s Be The Change Action Circle promise you a transformative education experience this Saturday, May 27that the Awaken and Change Symposium.  Co-hosted by BRIM (Building Resilience In Mission), this life-changing event will take place from 1-5 pm in the Cafetorium at Heritage Park Middle School.

Facilitators from Be The Change Earth Alliance, will lead participants through a thought-provoking exploration of our relationship with the planet… Where are we? How did we get here? What is possible for the future? Where do we go from here?

The afternoon features cutting-edge information, interactive dialogue and rich audiovisual materials presenting the combined wisdom of such international luminaries as Julia Butterfly Hill, Paul Hawken, Brian Swimme, Maude Barlowe, Van Jones and Desmond Tutu.

Most importantly, participants will explore the many ways that each of us can make a difference in our own lives and communities and have fun doing it.  

Admission is by donation, and teachers are welcome to bring students for free. Advance registration is strongly recommended as space is limited, but we will not be turning anyone away at the door. For more information or to register for the event, please email [email protected].


We look forward to seeing you there!
