Kids will create portraits of famous Israelis using everyday objects, make a map of Israel out of cardboard and other recycled materials, use upcycled fabric to put together an Israeli flag, and more!

    Founded in 1983, Kibbutz Lotan is located in the Negev desert in southern Israel and is an “eco-Jewish community educating its children to love and protect the environment.” The Center for Creative Ecology, established in 1997 at the Kibbutz has become a world class training, research and demonstration center for technologies related to having a healthier and more sustainable community. The focus is on “organic food production, ecological building methods, appropriate technologies, and permaculture design.” Alex Cicelsky, founder of Kibbutz Lotan and the Center for Creative Ecology was born in New York and consults and lectures around the world on permaculture and community planning, sustainable design technologies, passive solar design of energy efficient buildings and environmental ethics. At Earth Day Community Celebration, Alex will lead several groups in the construction of geodesic domes.

    Many people don't think their voice counts but we're here to tell you that the most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any. This rate increase especially affects the poor and low-income. 

    IPL wants to iIncrease the monthly fixed charge on most customers to $27 per month, a 59% increase. This would give IPL the highest monthly fixed charge of any investorowned utility in Indiana, by far.

  • Environmentally Responsible Investing Workshop

     

     

    Environmentally responsible ways to invest endowment funds and other pools of money is a topic of frequent debate in many organizations including congregations. These discussions are often fueled by media coverage or by single issue advocates but do not apply a more systematic approach using key environmental and creation care principles. This workshop addresses directly the important role congregational investment leaders can play in developing key principles, assessing responsible investment choices, assuring financial performance and communicating the principles, practices, and results to the congregation and community. The workshop is also targeted for individuals within congregations that perceive the benefit to this approach as well.

     

    Recommended Participants: Congregation at large, congregational members involved with green teams, social action committees, finance and budget committees, boards of directors, trustees and individuals.    

     

    Our presenter is Julie Singer, a financial advisor from Singer Wealth Advisory of Raymond James. She specializes in socially and environmentally responsible investing.
