Co-Creating the Eco-Future: Meetup & Discussion
Monday, December 6 at 7 pm EST on Zoom
Hi there all you cultural creatives! Simple livers, renegades from the consumer society, green activists, arts and craft makers, yoga lovers, meditators – you know who you are! Join us for a meet and greet, a time to share what you are reading, watching, imagining, and doing to make the changes we need to get to an ecological culture. We can get there if we gather together, online and in person, learn from each other, and build a community that is inclusive, resilient, and way more fun than life in big box stores, traffic jams, and fast food. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for! Contact: Chuck@simplyliving.org Register

Join Us! The Economics of Happiness:
Deep Dive and Discussion of Community Localization
Tuesday, December 7 at 7 pm EST via Zoom
This discussion course is based on the award-winning film, Economics of Happiness (EOH), developed by Helena Norberg-Hodge and her team at the International Society for an Ecological Culture (LocalFutures.org). Each session includes content from the EOH film or related media, a presentation that frames and explores the topic in greater depth, and class discussions based on selected readings in the booklet Localization: Essential Steps to an Economics of Happiness. Participants can attend any or all classes.
In this session we will explore the many ways our communities benefit when localization is a priority. To learn more about the topic, check out this reading on the benefits of localization to understand how localization can serve as an antidote to the negative impacts of globalization. You can view short films that address this topic here. Come prepared to discuss how localization is happening in Columbus and central Ohio.
Chuck Lynd is the facilitator, and he will share his experience of leading a coalition of local organizations engaged in Local Food, Locally owned retail goods and services, Local micro loans to entrepreneurs, Local community banks and credit unions, and local businesses and advocacy groups. As we like to say: Eat Local, Buy Local, Bank Local, Invest Local, and LIVE Local. The session is free or consider a free will donation. The zoom link will be sent to you after registering here.

10 Reasons to Be Optimistic About Climate Change
BY JEFF GOODELL for YES! Magazine
The 26th U.N. Climate Change Conference is underway in Glasgow, and it already looks like a slow-motion train wreck. The leaders of three of the biggest polluting nations—Russia, Brazil, and China—aren’t there. The national pledges that have already been made to cut emissions won’t be met—and even if they were, they aren’t enough to avoid catastrophic warming. Rich nations of the world are woefully behind in their commitment to pay $100 billion a year into the Green Climate Fund to help poor nations adapt to climate impacts and transition to clean energy.
But the climate fight is a big and complex war that’s being carried out on many fronts. Even for experienced climate warriors, it’s hard to keep the whole picture in your head at once. The apathy and self-dealing in Glasgow are obvious. What’s less obvious are signs of real progress.

We need to have a course in school that teaches about ecology

Friday, November 12, 2021, 1:00 PM. What’s Going on with the Iran Deal? With Assal Rad. Now 9 months into the presidency of Joe Biden, the United States continues to stay out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, a deal to which Iran, Russia, China, Germany, France, and the United Kingdom still adhere. Violating both international norms and his own campaign promises, President Biden has wasted time and threatened to scotch one of Barack Obama’s greatest foreign policy achievements. Advocates for peace and justice have been left scratching their heads, wondering what the solution is to an intransigent administration. Joining Massachusetts Peace Action to discuss next steps for the Peace Movement and the overall state of US-Iran relations is Dr. Assal Rad, Senior Research Fellow at the National Iranian American Council.

As part of our program, we will meet with Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel who will personally give us an overview of the challenges that Cuba has been facing from the brutal US economic blockade and the COVID pandemic, and how the country is creatively responding. Throughout our visit we will witness in greater depth the challenges, and the responses through its national health care system, its social system, its international medical brigades, and its mass vaccination campaign using its own vaccines. We will be taking with us much needed medicines and medical supplies. These supplies will be things Cuba could produce for itself if it wasn’t for the brutal economic war of the blockade.

Sunday, November 14, 2021, 3:00 PM. Voices from the Holy Land Online Film Salon: “1948: Creation and Catastrophe.” “1948: Creation & Catastrophe” is the story of the establishment of Israel as seen through the eyes of the people who lived it. Rather than being a history lesson, this documentary is a primer for the present. It is simply not possible to make sense of what is happening in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict today without an understanding of 1948. Yet despite the critical importance of 1948, most of the people interviewed for this documentary have never been able to tell their story in full. For nearly seven decades, they have been living with the legacy of that fateful year. Many of the veterans, refugees and witnesses interviewed have already passed away. This film truly is the last chance to hear this story directly from those who lived it. Once you register, you will get a confirmation email from Zoom with a link to the meeting and a link with to watch the film. More information and registration here.

Wednesday, November 17, 2021, 7:00 PM. Media, Politics and Palestine with Anti-war Journalist Ryan Wentz. As the ongoing oppression and occupation of the Palestinian people continues, executed by the Israeli government and supported by the U.S. government, extremist Zionist settlers provoked another round of war this year in Palestine/Israel. As Israel subjugates the Palestinian people and wages war, the corporate U.S. media reflexively blames “both sides” creating a false equivalence between the nuclear-armed state of Israel and the stateless Palestinian people. With regards to Palestine, and broader issues of U.S. foreign policy, young and creative journalists are creating infrastructures to distribute information outside of the traditional, corporate media. On November 18 at 7 pm EDT, we are joined by journalist Ryan Wentz. Ryan currently works for MintPress News and has a background in Palestine solidarity organizing and anti-war activism. Ryan previously organized with Beyond the Bomb, Codepink, and more. Join us for an exciting discussion about traditional and alternative media, Palestine, and U.S. politics.

Thursday, November 18 and Friday, November 19, 2021, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Ohio Public Interest Environmental Law Conference: Our Fight for Clean, Safe & Accessible Water. Everyone deserves safe drinking water, both at the source and at the tap. They also deserve accessible water. No one should fear losing their access to their water, whether due to a disaster or because their water costs too much. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact everyone, the essentials for survival have become more apparent in our lives. At our 2020 law conference, we focused our discussions on democracy, and we’ve seen our democratic systems tested over the past year. In the present, debates over infrastructure funding and climate policy rage across the nation. This year, our focus on water will highlight the victories, struggles, and ongoing fights for clean, safe & accessible water in Ohio and across the country. From federal to state to local policy, to executive decision-makers to community organizers, we’re considering many approaches to ensuring water for all. The Ohio Public Interest Environmental Law Conference is open to all, whether you’re an attorney, advocate, student, or someone simply ready to learn. Attending attorneys will receive continuing legal education (CLE) credits for each webinar they attend. We expect to be providing a total of 6 CLE hours (pending Ohio Supreme Court approval). More information and link to registration here.
Friday, November 19, 2021, 12:00 – 1:00 PM. The Problem with Plurality-Winner Elections – And Can Requiring Majority Winners Help Save Democracy? Only six states require their Members of Congress to be elected with a majority of the vote. All other states allow for plurality winners who, in multi-candidate elections, get more votes than any other candidate, but over half of the voters might have wanted someone else. What does that mean in a representative democracy with an allegiance to majority rule? And for a candidate who can’t win their own party’s primary election (because they aren’t favored by the relatively small and intense base of primary voters), but who would be the most preferred candidate in the general election, what is the effect of a plurality-winner rule? Our panel of experts will tackle these questions as we search for ways to protect our system of democracy. The panel will be moderated by Professor Steven Huefner, The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. More information and registration here.
