They are calling it a Global Work Party, with emphasis on both “work” and “party.” From New Zealand to Uganda and all the way to Altadena, 6,227 Eco Fest events will take place in 185 different countries as environmental groups around the globe join forces to send a message to legislators about the climate crisis. The Altadena Eco Fest event on 10-10-10 is sponsored by Sukyo Mahikari Centers for Spiritual Development and will take place at the Altadena Center. Envisioned and organized through the combined efforts of the center’s youth groups from Torrance, Los Angeles and Altadena, the day will include live music, guest speakers, food, children’s activities and eco-demonstrations. Sukyo Mahikari promotes positive attitudes and action and has been promoting environmentally friendly lifestyles through such activities as “Reduce-Reuse-Recycle-Repair” for several years.
