Sacred People, Sacred Earth Day of Climate Action

Our sacred planet is experiencing challenging transitions, induced by the way the actions of humans are changing the global climate. To heal and restore the living world, and to protect humans who are suffering from the effects of the climate emergency, we humans must unite across many divides to transform how we live on our beautiful planet. Novasutras will participate in the Sacred People, Sacred Earth Day of Climate Action March 11th.

Child Hardship Updates

Levels of child hardship - hunger and housing insecurity - associated with the Covid pandemic are being under-reported. Novasutras Uplifters in the Child Hardship Fact Force are assembling information to help organizations in the United States come together and prevent the impending tragedies of eviction, hunger and homelessness that threaten millions of children. Paul Schaafsma has investigated levels of child food and housing insecurity associated with (but not caused by) the pandemic, as revealed in the Census Bureau's "Household Pulse Survey," conducted at regular intervals since April of last year. Paul has also looked at the recent Covid Relief Bill, to realistically assess how much difference it will make for millions of children who are most in need. These updates will be discussed in the Child Hardship Fact Force meeting this Tuesday.

Falling in Love with Earth’s Three Green Hearts

Our beloved Earth has three green hearts -- Amazonia, Congo and Sundaland -- the worlds three major equatorial rainforest systems. These are places of unfathomable complexity and diversity, places of beauty and wonder. They are the living embodiment of agaya and ubuntu -- joyous, raucous, mysterious, fierce and lovely. Join the event on Fri, Feb 12th, 9am PST.
