Power Shift 2009!

a Biblical thought...
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:14-16)

a Book thought...
Every year there are more innovations and job categories. In this speeded-up world of constant change, it makes sense for all of us to be future makers and to conduct structured destiny
dialogues, derivation dialogues and destination dialogues, rather than be future-takers who opt for the best or even the least worse choice of what has been created by others. (p105)

a Dave thought...
In four weeks time, thousands of young Australians are converging on Sydney to train and mobilise for climate action. Organised by the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Powershift is moment that could change your life - if you let it.
What: 3 awesome days of inspiration, training, sharing and meeting other cool young people from around Australia. Don't miss the huge concert on Saturday night! Conference attendees will learn the best practices of climate organising, including: campaign and event planning, recruitment, media, public speaking, lobbying, leadership development, coalition-building, campaign strategy, and community and campus organising.
Where: University of Western Sydney, Parramatta Campus - the geographical heart of Sydney. When: Saturday 11 July - Monday 13 July.

Just a thought.
