'Sustainable Energy in Motion' Bike Tour
Tipster Vladislav D. thought TH readers might be interested in a program he is involved with. So we read the associated blurb: Bike hundreds of miles. Meet Incredible people, Participate In amazing service projects. Stay on organic farms and work to support sustalnable food growth practices. Study and work with Native American communities. Live with the land and camp under the stars. Change your world, one mile at a time." But it just didn't seem to have anything that would appeal to Treehuggers, so we decided not to mention it. I mean, who'd want to spend nine days outdoors, travelling by human-powered means, doing good works and eating "mostly locally-sourced, organic and vegan" meals? ....And organized by a group that has as its ten key values: grassroots democracy, social justice and equal opportunity, ecological wisdom, non-violence, decentalisation, community-based economics and economic justice, feminism and gender equity, respect for diversity, personal and global responsibility, future focus and sustainability? Nah, there was no way we could make a post on such stuff get up and fly. Our readers wouldn't be the slightest bit intrigued by something like this. Just what was the ::The Portland Peace & Justice Centre thinking?
