Symposium on Environmental Sustainability to be Held at FSEC on June 11
 
An interactive symposium "Awakening the Dreamer - Changing the Dream" will be 
presented by The Pachamama Alliance at the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) on 
Sunday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  This environmentally oriented program 
looks at "where on Earth are we going?" and "what can we do about it?"

The symposium will examine issues of environmental sustainability, spiritual 
fulfillment and social justice on Earth today.  Participants will gain new 
insights into opportunities to positively shape and impact the planet's future 
with their everyday choices and actions through the use of video clips by 
respected scientists and thinkers, short films, information and dynamic group 
interactions.

The Pachamama Alliance is an international organization born in response to a 
request from the Achuar, an indigenous people living deep in the Amazon region of 
Ecuador.  More information on the organization and the symposium are available at 
www.pachamama.org.  Additional information is also available from Dr. Ross McCluney, 
the conference host, at 321-783-4161. 

The symposium will be held in the CCTS Conference Room of the Florida Solar Energy 
Center at 1679 Clearlake Road, Cocoa, Florida, on the campus of the University of 
Central Florida/Brevard Community College Cocoa.  Directions are available at
