Jacksonville’s Step It Up 2007 Events, and more…

April 11, 2007


Scope this flyer! See you this Saturday.

Well you probably already read the article in Folio this week (which, if not, you should totally read asap! Owen Holmes is rockin!) –  and therefore you know that this Saturday is kind of a big day.

The topic of Global Warming is so big in fact that I saw that it made the cover of Time Magazine recently. (I’m sure it’s been on plenty of newsstands in various forms, I just noticed it while in line at Publix. And no, I didn’t BUY it, the library carries that magazine!)

And global warming is so misunderstood of topic that – a friend of mine recently mentioned how his mom asked him if he “believes” in global warming.  When he told her it’s been a topic he’s heard about for quite some time – like years – she was shocked. So apparently, even ‘yr mom’ may not know what’s up.

There are THREE individual events occurring Saturday, April 14th as part of Jacksonville’s participation in Step It Up 2007’s national day of climate change action.

10am: ALLTEL STADIUM. Step It Up press conference held by the National Wildlife Federation.

2pm: JCNI PANEL AND PUBLIC DIALOGUE ON CLIMATE CHANGE. At Riverside Presbyterian Day School.

5pm: RECEPTION AND CONCERT IN RIVERSIDE PARK. Featuring Teen Vogue Dot Com, Airport Factory, Joe Gaskins, Environmental Youth Crunch and Tubers!

And though not a Step It Up event, a nice way to end the day!…

8pm: AUTHOR/SPEAKER ALEXIS ZIEGLER will be speaking at Inertia. Check out our previous post about him here.

And the Public Library in all it’s wisdom (yes!) has an upcoming program titled “Global Warming: Crisis or Myth.”  From the Libraries website– “Lee McLane, Global Warming Messenger from the Al Gore Training Project, will speak on this timely topic, which is based on Al Gore’s book and movie An Inconvenient Truth.” Sounds awesome.  

That program is…
