Moving Planet Day

 

In support of the Moving Planet worldwide action day, TSL is having a kite-flying session combined with a swap party on Mui Wo beach. Bring along items to swap that are in good condition: books, clothes, household items, anything at all. If you bring six items, you can take away six items. Everything is valued equally, and no money changes hands. Anything left over will go to the PALS stall in Discovery Bay to help fund their activities. See below for more details about a picnic and guerrilla gardening.

Mass Kite Flying at 4pm on Mui Wo Beach
Followed by a Beach Blanket Swap Shop & a sunset picnic ( Maybe a spot of Guerilla Gardening afterwards)

 

Bring:
A blanket, a kite ( there may be spares) & items you’d like to swap or recycle with others
To:
Mui Wo Beach Volleyball Area and the Wang Tong Stream (the little footbridge)
It is an event for the whole family.  You might even like to have a picnic with us as we watch the sunset
This event joins the hundreds of other Moving Planet actions across the globe on the 24th Sept to call for:

 

Science-based policies to get us back to 350ppm
A rapid, just transition to zero carbon emissions.
Mobilizing funding for a fair transition to a 350ppm world.
Lifting the rights of people over the rights of polluters.

About transitionsl

I've been an English teacher for the best part of 30 years, teaching in England, Tanzania, Brunei, Australia and Hong Kong. I've always been interested in nature and environmental issues, but it was the discovery of Peak Oil about five years ago that galvanised me into trying to help my local community to prepare for what will be a dramatically different world to the one many of us have been used to. I've been helping to run a transition group, following the guidelines created by Rob Hopkins's Transition Movement in the UK. This blog is an attempt to engage in discussion with a wider group of people in Hong Kong on the ways to transition from our current oil dependency to a state of fossil-free local resilience.
