Introduction

It is possible to limit the effects of human-caused climate change and restore the environment—and some big changes are needed if this is to happen. These changes will require a massive movement, spanning the globe, of people of every background.

In Sustaining All Life (SAL), we believe that the barriers to building a sufficiently large and powerful movement include:

🌸 longstanding divisions (usually caused by oppression) between nations and between groups of people within nations,

🌸 widespread feelings that it’s too late and any actions will be ineffective,

🌸 denial of or failure to engage with the climate emergency, and

🌸difficulties in effectively addressing the connections between the environmental crisis and the failures of our economic system.

Sustaining All Life works to address these issues and others.

 

Sustaining All Life/United to End Racism
returns from COP27

 

🌍  COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt  🌍

NOVEMBER 6-13, 2022

Sustaining All Life/United to End Racism attend COP27 (United Nations Climate Conference) in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt in November 2022.

After many hours of work and much expense, most of our African delegates were able to get a visa to attend the COP.  We presented all of our planned events in the Green Zone and were deeply welcomed.  We came home with the names and emails of more than 600 people who indicated a desire to followup with us, and we've begun that work.

The Green Zone once again was our home.  While we made many good contacts in the Blue Zone, the logistics of the COP made it difficult to get staff to our booth.

We presented the following events in-person in the Green Zone during the first week (local time in Egypt). We used listening projects for the hour and a half before the events to inform people, interest them in the topic, and give them a taste of our listening tools.  It was very effective.

The walls of our booths are covered with beautiful posters communicating our key ideas. Many people read them and had questions.  A number of people were excited to learn that there was a group focusing on emotional healing... they had figured out they needed to offer that component in their work, but didn't know how. 

 

 

 

Introductory workshops offered upon request.

Our Activities

SAL/UER at the COPs and climate action summits presents a series of daily workshops, forums, support groups, listening projects, introductory classes, caucuses, and more.

SAL workshop presenters share their perspective on key topics related to the climate emergency and how we have used the tools of Re-evaluation Counseling to free ourselves and others from emotional hurts that have interfered with our functioning. The workshops are interactive, giving participants the chance to share their experiences and be listened to awarely.

SAL forums provide opportunities for people impacted by climate change, activists, indigenous people, and others to speak to an assembled group with their story. Periodically the flow of speakers is paused to give the audience the opportunity to exchange listening with one another in pairs. Everyone appreciates the chance to tell their stories to an interested audience, as well as the chance to hear others' stories.
