Kirksville World Car-Free Day Shared with the World

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

The leader of the Abundant Mobility Workshop, Wolfgang Hoeschele, wrote a report for shareable.net, a website focused on bringing about a better world.

Here’s part of Wolfgang’s note in the email he sent to the attendees of the workshop that the article is online:

Please note the links, designed to provide information about initiatives elsewhere in the country that might give us ideas about how to do things in Kirksville – I hope this will be a useful resource. Also, please make others aware of this website, and provide comments in the comments section at the bottom.

Thanks to all for making Kirksville a place where we can bring about a better world.

Baked Goods Not Bank Bailouts!

Monday, November 1st, 2010
On Thursday, November 4, Keith McHenry, co-founder of the 30 year-old social justice activist organization Food Not Bombs, is coming to Kirksville to give his presentation, “Baked Goods Not Bank Bailouts!”

He will be at Truman’s campus for the afternoon, then will be speaking in Magruder 2001 from 8-9:30.

We provided the impetus for this to happen, and Kate Seaton along with Truman State University’s Peace Fellows, Students for Social Change, Environmental Campus Organization, Truman in Africa, The Communiversity Garden and the President’s Sustainability Action Committee, have funded it and made it become a reality.

Here’s a description of the event from the Facebook Event:

Come one come all to hear Keith McHenry, co-founder of the organization Food Not Bombs speak about their current project Baked Goods Not Bank Bailouts! There will be a lecture, short film, demonstration of a solar oven, potentially some delicious breads, and a Q&A session.

Thanks to all of them for carrying on this exciting event for Kirksville!
