Ecology Democracy Network October 2017 Calendar


The Ecology Democracy Network educates and organizes to reverse ecological overshoot:
By August 2, 2017, we will have used more from nature than our planet can renew in the whole year. We use more ecological resources and services than nature can regenerate through overfishing, overharvesting forests, and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than forests can sequester.

We will discuss the mandates and organizing vision of the Network, which includes:

    • The Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI)
    • Bank of Minnesota
 
  • Proportional Representation for the Minnesota House of Representatives
    • We will look at five maps, where 5% - 10% of the vote would win you or your political party a seat in the House.
 
  • Removal of Big Money and Corporate Interference in Our Government
    • Public funding of public election
    • Learn about Move to Amend

These mandates are not exclusive to Minnesota; contact me if you would like to strategize for these goals where you live.
