World Climate Ribbon on Display at EcoFest Encinitas

Climate Change Ribbon Wall To Be Displayed on May 15

The Climate Change Ribbon Wall to Be On Display @ EcoFest, Sunday, May 15, 2016

Tekamuk Energy, Wipomo and the North County Eco Alliance (NCEA) have partnered to bring the global Climate Ribbon project to San Diego, launching it at EcoFest Encinitas on Sunday, May 15th.

EcoFest Encinitas, held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Coastal Roots Farm at 450 Quail Gardens Drive, will be it’s inaugural stop in San Diego before it goes on to tour earth festivals in the region for the remainder of this year and into 2017. EcoFest attendees will be invited to write what they cherish most that Climate Chaos threatens to wipe away: the Gulf Coast, next year’s harvest, the future of our children’s children, the bees, clean air, water are just a few examples.

Act on Climate Change nowThe Climate Ribbon project, which has been referred to as the AIDS quilt of Climate Action, began in New York City in the fall of 2014 at the UN Climate Summit. Since then, it has traveled to cities across the US and most recently appeared in France for the Paris Climate Summit at the end of November. Collectively, these ribbons compose a kind of “people’s treaty,” inspired in part by Northeastern Native American quahog and whelk shell wampum belts that signify the mutual exchange of trust that takes place when commitments are made between peoples.

Tekamuk Energy, owned and operated by the Mesa Grande Band of Mission Indians, chose EcoFest Encinitas as the kick-off for the San Diego Climate Ribbon tour in support of this year’s focus on celebrating the wisdom of our ancestors and their respect of nature.

“Rather than being in a constant power struggle against nature, our ancestors understood how to work within the set boundaries before them and out of a spirit of respect for their home and future generations came to know how the resources could be used for their survival,” said Virgil Oyos, Chairman for Mesa Grande.

Volunteers from Tekamuk Energy will install the multi-colored Climate Ribbon walkway between EcoFest’s ‘Community Circle’, where traditional ceremonies like the Eagle dance for Global Peace and World Healing will be performed, and the ‘Sustainability Plaza’, where businesses and organizations offering information and services on the newest technologies will be available.

“The installation of the Climate Ribbon walkway at EcoFest is a perfect example of what we can accomplish when we all work together towards a common goal,” said Sandy Atkinson, Vice President of the NCEA, organizer of EcoFest Encinitas.

Ms. Atkinson added that nearly 400 students have already written their Climate Ribbons. “We are so thrilled to be involved in bringing this global project to the San Diego region with partners Tekamuk Energy and Wipomo.”

The Climate Ribbon project was first introduced to the NCEA by Kalli Sorensen of Seaside Sisters, who added her ribbon to the rainbow of commitments to create a healthy and sustainable planet at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City, Utah (see photo). Seaside Sisters will begin writing their Climate Ribbons at the EcoFest Kickoff reception and environmental film screening series of “This Changes Everything” on May 5 at the Seaside Center in Encinitas. Tickets are $10 and will be available for purchase at the door. For more information, visit www.ecofestencinitas.org.
