Join us for Action

Raising self-awareness in an essential precursor to effective change, but self-awareness alone will not result in change. We believe change occurs in the context of community. Our goal is to form action groups in response to volunteer interest and energy. These groups will seek ways of affecting decisions being made in our community.
  • Check out the foci listed in the sidebar to the left. See if you are ready to participate in related action.
  • There is some interest in forming a book club examining Voluntary Simplicity. Contact us if you are interested.
  • We wish to prepare a display that could be taken to our communities' summer events -- Summer in the City, Niverville Fair, Vita Fair, etc. We need help in the design and construction of such a display, We also will need people to spend time at the booth in summer. If you have any interest in being involved, Contact us.
Take Individual Action

In the end we all act as individuals, regardless of what decisions the group makes. Nevetheless, we doubt that any individual acting alone will make much of a difference. This is why we need to work together. But our culture needs to change, and that will only change as individually we change our habits, our way of doing things.
