Greenspiration Asia Show Coming To Ottawa

Everybody knows the environmental horror stories. But what can be done
about it?
After decades working for environmental change in Montreal and Edmonton,
activists Angela Bischoff and former Edmonton City Councillor Tooker
Gomberg headed out with their bicycles and 200 pounds of gear. Their
mission: to track down and share inspiring ecological stories.
Come hear their stories from Southeast Asia and:
* SEE the never-ending, moving bicycle carpet of Osaka
* HEAR the giant frogs of Hong Kong croaking on quiet, car-free Lamma
* TASTE the tension as Angela confronts an illegal tiger-paw vendor in a
Guangzhou (China) market
* SMELL the exhaust as formerly calm Asian cities succumb to fumes from
switching to internal combustion based transportation
* MARVEL at how millions of Chinese are turning excrement into energy for
illumination and cooking gas
* APPLAUD Japan's awakening to the red sun symbolized on its flag as an
attractive source of electricity and energy for hot water.
* JOIN people around the world working for sustainable, healthy solutions.

WHEN:  Wednesday, March 10, 7:30 p.m.
WHERE: SAW Gallery, 67 Nicholas Street, Ottawa

All are welcome. Admission is by donation.
You can catch a sneak preview of our tales from Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong,
China and Vietnam at http://www.greenspiration.org
Please spread the word... and keep in touch! Hope to see you on Wednesday.
A bientot,

-tooker and angela
