Working towards peace and sustainability

Join the Green Team

The Peaceworks’ Green Team is all about EMPOWERMENT. We are struggling with an unprecedented climate crisis and events daily remind us how unsustainable our culture and our lives are.

Many of us are aware, but feel powerless to take action. Paradoxically, this widespread sense of disempowerment and inaction makes action on the part of others less likely to succeed. We have organized the Green Team based upon the premise that many of us acting—in both the personal and the social/political realms—will make a difference.

Today we’re experiencing a warmer world and a climate that’s changing even faster than the experts’ models predicted (see “Code Red for Humanity” pg. ). The combination of unprecedented wild fires, floods, droughts, severe heat waves, super-storms, melting ice, rising sea levels and more, has opened the eyes of many who were not previously paying much attention to the climate crisis.

Peaceworks now sends out a once weekly Green Team News by e-mail. It generally has one action alert and a few sustainable living tips, thus offering the opportunity for group action in the public arena as well as some ideas as to how one might green-up their lifestyle. We promise not to spam you. Just one e-mail a week will come your way.

This past summer and into the fall, Peaceworks volunteers and staff have been canvassing—knocking on doors—encouraging folks to get engaged in addressing our shared crisis. We’ve been inviting them to sign up to join the Green Team. Several hundred have done so. We plan to continue this effort into the fall and invite anyone reading this who’d like to help to please contact us to volunteer. You can write to us at
midmopeaceworks@gmail.com or call us at 573-875-0539.

If you’ve not already signed up to join the Green Team the easiest way to do so is taking this link to a short Google Form that takes less than a minute to fill out.

Thanks for whatever you can do. And remember, we’re all in this together and our action now is sorely needed, for our own sake and for the sake of our kids, grandkids and all who’ll come after us.
