Coconut Grove/FL The number of events embracing the worldwide movement for social and environmental change and that are dedicated to restoring the planet and fostering social justice continues to span the globe on Earth Day and every day from billion-dollar nonprofits to single-person dot.causes.
Most recently concerned citizens from Bahrain to Biscayne Bay and Time Square have gathered to express a murmuring mantra that economic growth fueled by fossil fuels, avaricious capitalism and plundering our finite resources is simply not sustainable. Earth Day first held on April 22, 1970, has evolved into a global event stewarded by EarthDay.org, It serves as annual wakeup call that includes the participation of a billion or more people representing more than 193 countries. The official theme for 2022 was Invest in Our Planet. This sentiment was evidenced at the Climate Change Forum, March 21-24 in the Kingdom of Bharain, as “Global Investment in Sustainable Development’. http://pacrimcc.com/cc-forum-gulf-edition-advances-a-bright-green-future-with-dramatic-innovation-across-multiple-sectors/
Two such events whose attendees refused to despair at what many believe is a dystopian future were brimming with ideas, innovative strategies and dare say hope. One, the Good News Broadcast’s Ukrainian Peace Movement Fundraiser coincided with the Artistic Luxury Gallery in Coconut Grove, Florida presided over by Paul Sladkus in New York and Peter Studl in South Florida. Both reflected a commitment to a cause that Paul Hawkins author of the New Yok Times Best Seller “Blessed Unrest” refers to, “as the largest ad hoc movement on earth. A movement that has no name, leader, or location and has gone largely ignored by politicians and until recently the media.
Guests exhibited an exuberance and alacrity befitting the dawn of a new era. Countless people are bringing their collective vision into a sharper focus. Where, we the people, are charged to act forcefully in order to mitigate the destruction we have wrought. By transforming the way we live and the values we embrace we may assure a present and future habitable planet.
“We are at the very vanguard of melding art with activism at Artistic Luxury Gallery and invite patrons to celebrate with us Earth Day everyday,” confirmed Adrienne Gershon gallery curator. “We presented an acoustic performance by Sydney Blue with accompaniment Jacob & Ricardo. Simultaneously in New York’s Time Square a breakout musical performances appeared on a giant LED Screen.
