Young Adult Episcopalians in Nebraska and the Green Sprouts environmental stewardship group are working together for a healthy and sustainable environment this Sunday. Sunday’s date is 10.10.10. Several environmental groups, with 350.org in the lead, have designated 10.10.10 as a Global Work Party day. The idea is for people at the grassroots level around the world to get to work on the environment, hoping that the sight of thousands of grassroots work parties will inspire people in power to put more effort into working for a sustainable environment. As of yesterday evening, there were 6391 events planned in 187 countries.
We plan to meet at Lake Hastings (on the north side of Hastings) at 2:00. Trash bags will be on hand, as will work gloves if you don’t have your own. From Lake Hastings, we will walk in small groups, picking up trash and also observing some things around us. When we come back together, we will have some time for worship and reflection, then share some snacks and conversation.
For folks in the eastern part of the diocese who can’t get to Hastings in the afternoon, the 350.org website can give you details of several events in Lincoln and Omaha.
Details about WDWT are available on this page of the 350.org website, or on event pages on Facebook created by Young Adult Episcopalians in Nebraska or Green Sprouts.
