The Rendezvous
August 17 and 18, 2013 | Irasburg, Vermont
What is the Rendezvous?
The Rendezvous is a bold beginning to reorder human life on the planet, starting with our own region. It is an event for anyone who cares about maintaining a livable planet. It is a time to explore a collective vision for the future guided by the Truth about finite resources; Culture grounded in a right relationship with the Earth; Peace and environmental and social Justice; and Energy generation that protects the natural systems on which we depend.

The Rendezvous is organized by the northern Vermont coalition, Mountain Occupiers; along with members of regional groups such as Rising Tide, 350 Vermont, and the Vermont Workers Center. Attendees will include members of environmental and social justice groups from across New England and Québec.

The Setting:
The Rendezvous will take place in a 50-acre field near Irasburg village. The location has expansive views of the surrounding ridgelines, including the controversial Lowell Wind Project. Beneath the field is a 73 year old pipeline that is under consideration to carry tar sands oil. Participants will camp onsite, sharing food, ideas, and knowledge. A natural amphitheatre will be the venue for local musicians, a Bread and Puppet performance, and keynote speaker Peter Brown, Ph.D. (Author of Right Relationships: Building a Whole Earth Economy). Attendance is by donation.

See you at The Rendezvous!

“We are participants in a conflict between two cultures. The dominant culture regards the Earth as a natural resource to be dominated for the purpose of extraction of personal wealth. We regard the Earth and all creation as a set of right relationships and our role is to understand and live by and within those relationships” (Peter Brown).
