Last weekend’s Green Festival in Seattle was a smashing success put on by Global Exchange and Co-op America, these annual events bring together activists, entrepreners, consumers, writers, and the merely curious for envisioning and organizing a greener, more democratic world. The fests are now being held in four cities each year, and the response grows more enthusiastic with each event. More than 1000 people attended my speech in Seattle, and their spirits were higher than Mt Ranier. Check out the uplifting stories at http://www.greenfestivals.org/— and go to one if you get the chance.
I’m off to Asheville and the North Carolina triangle for 2 days of benefits for the very active “clean election” advocates there. Then I go to Tampa for a celebration of WMNF, the great community radio station.
