• Organize local activism near the event location to promote the upcoming Townhall to the local community (ex: if the Townhall is going to be at a college, then set up a day of tabling activism on campus. Or, you might plan a day to go out and do some banner activism in the area.
Many are already active volunteers just by sharing the understandings and values with other people every day in organic spontaneous ways, and by living the values of the movement and being in integrity with the personal/social transformation surely upon us.
Social activism can express itself in all kinds of ways. One Planet Project, along with the other "action teams" are just some of the ways we've had success so far, so they are offered as tools.
You're welcome to build upon and carry these actions forward however you may as you feel moved to do so. Take what you will from what has worked, and carry the movement forward. There's really no "box", to box this movement in. We are all kind of "coordinators" of self-initiated awareness efforts, just as long as we stay relevant to what TZM is, and is doing.
We're all together in this. Many are taking this information to the community in creative ways, uniting the culture around sustainability and peace.
