Be a Part of Making a Difference!

Over the past few weeks we have been following the Earth Day events, as well as Arbor Day programs; days that are based on helping our planet and making sure that our resources survive in order for the next generation to enjoy them.

The Green Register has offered information and data every single day to readers and ‘wanters’ who wish to do anything and everything within their power to ‘go green’ and live an eco-friendly life. And no, we’re not talking about spending money on electric cars or building huge homes out of ‘green’ supplies. No, we’re talking about the little things that each of us – no matter what the size of our pocketbook may be – can do to help and preserve our environment.

Well now, we are going to focus on the Spring of Sustainability – a truly wonderful idea, concept and organization with a mission that all out there need to learn about and become a part of.

The mission of SOS is to join individuals and supporting organizations who want to truly work toward a world that is ‘environmentally sustainable, socially just and spiritually fulfilling.’ Their purpose is to educate, inspire and activate – by fostering a strong engagement in planetary sustainability and a fair, equitable human society. We are talking about a company that does everything from produce programs, events and materials to delve into true education for the rest of us by informing and promoting action that restores and maintains the health of the planet and the well-being of humanity.

I really want all of us to learn about this organization. I, myself, just came across it – which actually makes me a little upset. Why? Because this was out there the whole time I was living a non-green and over-abundant life that I did not need, completely unfocused on what is necessary to this earth and its people. No, I’m not preaching. I am just saying that there are SO many ways that we can stop the ‘bad things’ from happening in this world. We can stop our water from being dirty, our air from being contaminated, and we can save our trees, animals, and bio-systems if we simply all join together to do so – and it would NOT take away from all that ‘other stuff’ we have to get done on a daily basis to support our families.

The SOS has a true commitment to an on-going process of improvement in our society – a process we all can be a part of. They measure and report on progress and performance, they open lines of communication between individuals and green businesses, and they provide the public with honest information on the products and services that are available to literally change our lives and save the planet. We are smack dab in the middle of a three-month continuous event program, called the Spring of Sustainability for 2012.

The Sustainable World Coalition is co-producing this, which is the largest sustainability education and engagement initiative ever produced. What began on March 26th, 2012 and will continue through June 22nd 2012, is bringing the biggest names in sustainability to the world through half-hour daily teleconference presentations, one-day teleconference summits, live events, and telecourses.

And, best of all, it is absolutely free for the rest of us. You can register for FREE to be a part of the Spring of Sustainability and it is NOT too late to do so.

This three-month series of events, which they are producing in partnership with the Shift Network, is being offered largely free worldwide. The goal is to both raise awareness and empower large-scale shifts towards sustainability. Partners in this massive effort include organizations, like Bioneers, Green America, The Pachamama Alliance, Wiser Earth, Amazon Watch, New Reality, the Endangered Species Coalition – and many more. Over 100 top leaders and experts from around the world are presenting on ‘green living,’ thriving communities, global stewardship, and social justice.

And if you are an organization dedicated to sustainability or social justice, you can earn revenue while spreading the word about the Spring of Sustainability, at no cost to you! Guys, the list of events are outstanding and a whole lot of fun!

There are daily ‘core’ themes that are presented in half-hour interactive interviews (teleconferences) offering some of the best-known and most highly-respected ‘visionaries’ working in the sustainability movement. (These are organized along five tracks, one track per weekday for the entire 13-week duration, from 12-12:30 p.m. Pacific time): These include: Green Business (Mondays); Green Lifestyles (Tuesdays); Activism for a Just and Sustainable World (Wednesdays); Global Stewardship (Thursdays); and Sustainable World Pioneers (Fridays)

There are One-Day Teleconference Summits that are all-day interactive summits, featuring presentations, panels and keynotes, on: Indigenous Wisdom & Modern Science (May 26); and International Youth Jam (June 11).

Live Local Events and Webcasts are being held in cities across the world, featuring: Connecting the Climate Dots- 350.org events (May 5); and Awakening the Dreamer Symposia-Live events & webcast (May 12).

Education & Engagement Programs including, for the month of May, the Transition Challenge which looks at the ‘greening‘ of home & garden. And, in the month of June, Engagement Circles, which is a 9-session learning and action series.

There is a Multi-Media Telecourse (7-week and 14-week versions) of the Sustainable World Coalition’s certificate course in global sustainability: “Co-Creating A Thriving World,” which is a highly interactive experience in which people can deepen their understanding of major global issues and how they impact environmental health and social justice. Participants can also engage with a small community of cohorts who share values of sustainability and social justice and take positive action toward social and planetary healing.

One of the coolest things available so that we all know everything there is to know about the Spring of Sustainability is the Sustainable World Sourcebook, which is the new ‘Essential Guidebook for the Concerned Citizen’

This 2011 international award-winning book is literally a “one-stop source” to get readers up to speed quickly on the most essential information that we need to know in order to alter the perilous global trajectory that we are traveling. Resource depletion, species extinction and extreme societal inequities – these are major global issues that we face and we have to find a way to stop them from happening.

The Green Register wants everyone to have the knowledge that is out there, and they most definitely want you and I to partake of the incredibly educational, as well as interactive and fun material that the Spring of Sustainability provides.

We need promising solutions to our problems, so become part of the Spring of Sustainability and help get on the right track to where we need to be.
