Nov 12- Indy- Spirit and Place's There's No Place Like Home: Love Letters to Planet Earth

This intergenerational event invites you to learn from today’s youth as well as from the wisdom of elders. Third grade students from The Orchard School as well as other area schools will kick off the gathering by reading love letters to the earth. Older students will then present on climate education topics such as Climate Recovery. (They’ll also be happy to swap stories on how they have achieved policy victories in IPS!) Afterwards, older attendees will be invited to write their own love and action letters while youth learn about the new Children of Indiana Nature Park. When the two groups recommence, some of the elders will read their love letters to the next generation.

This event gives a voice to the young and energizes elders to exercise their power to protect and preserve. United, these generations can teach and learn from each other.  Begin with love, and anything is possible.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs requested.
