This just came to me via email:
'We are facing an unprecedented global emergency, the planet is in
crisis and we are in the midst of a mass extinction event. Scientists
believe we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. Carbon
emissions and temperatures keep rising; ecological collapse has begun.
On this course we are likely to see abrupt and irreversible devastation.
The time for denial is over – we know the truth about climate change. It
is time to act.
This is an invitation to write a letter of response to this crisis.
This could be a letter to or from the Earth, future or past generations,
those who hold positions of power and influence, other species. The idea
is open to interpretation: it can come from a personal place, be
dramatic in form, be a call to action. The invitation is open to all
- to think beyond the human narrative and to bear witness to the scale
and horror of this crisis. This is an opportunity to ask how this
existential threat affects the way we wish to live our lives and the
action we take.'
The full call-out is at https://www.letterstotheearth.com/ but the
deadline is 12 midnight on 29th March, ie. tomorrow - so if you want to
act, act now!
