Moving Planet Recap!
This past weekend was Moving Planet, an international campaign from 350.org to move the planet past fossil fuels and into the renewable energy scene.
Some ICES folks headed over to Cornell on Friday for a rally, flash mob, and dance party. We stopped by TIOLI beforehand and picked up some costumes. Somehow everyone knew when the Ithaca College kids showed up; it's still unclear what tipped them off...
At the rally, we stood with over 40 other students and community members by our demands for a clean energy future. The Cornell students delivered a letter to their President Skorton (read it here) asking to meet with him to discuss Cornell's leadership role in creating a just, sustainable campus.
On Saturday, ICES headed down to the Ithaca Farmer's Market by bike, bus, and on foot. We bought some local food to make sandwiches (bread, pesto, tomatoes, grapes, cheese, and possibly something else I forgot) and biked/walked to Stewart Park on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail to enjoy our delicious fare.
We like to have fun...
...and we love bikes!
Later that night some of us went to Earthdance. I did not however, and so I cannot provide a review, although I'm sure it was fun. Ha!
Either way, it was a great day!
