About The Event
Our place on this planet is becoming fragile as the natural climate becomes increasingly helpless in the face of the political and economic and industrial demands that continue to extract from but not give to it. The plants and animals in our environment are undoubtedly tough, but they are helpless against the constant and unrelenting onslaught of humankind which is, for the most part, self-serving. Can our now fragile environment sustain its biodiversity in the face of this constant battering?
As the sun sets on the horizon and the sky darkens, the night sky and the earth become one. While we (people) set ourselves apart from so much in the natural world, when the evening falls, we too become one with the earth. So let’s look after our natural heritage. We need it.
