Winds of Change Celebration in Arlington

Apr 11

We can all feel it…. The wind is turning, change is on the way Let’s face towards it and fill our sails Let‘s rise up on the winds of change Let’s reclaim our future Declare our will for a green and just world!

The Coronavirus pandemic has made us STOP - Look & Take Stock.

We see how unfair our world is and how much we rely on others, especially our mostly invisible citizens, for our everyday needs. But, all around us, we are witnessing people rising to the challenges and we are all re-discovering the most important things in life: our immediate surroundings, our health and the wellbeing of those who touch our lives, and the need to solve our challenges together.

We notice how quickly governments can act if there is the political will to do so. For a very short time, the bigger greenhouse gas emitting countries demonstrated that it’s possible to have a world that doesn’t depend on dirty fossil fuel.

Before we are fully immersed in ‘business as usual’, now is the time to celebrate the sheer love, care, and inventiveness of humans and to inspire ourselves and others to affirm that a greener and more just world is possible.

In celebration of spring, the season of renewal, and the beauty of the natural world, let us affix/tie/secure our colours to the mast, let them fly and make sure our hearts are to fly on the winds of change. Let’s bedeck our homes and gardens with messages and symbols of appreciation, hope, solidarity and just demands.

Join us at 1:00 pm on Sunday, April 11th in Arlington at Robbins Farm Park for a celebration of spring, kite flying, windsocks, art and the earth. This is a family-friendly community event. All are welcome.

Participants are requested to adhere to CDC Covid protocol including mask wearing and distancing.
