You can be an agent of change with your written words. This is the idea behind 100 Thousand Poets for Change, a grassroots organization now in its seventh year that brings communities together to call for environmental, social, and political change within the framework of peace and sustainability. On September 30, 2017, concerts, readings, workshops, flash mobs, parades and demonstrations will take place in more than 109 countries around the world.
Join us for Saint Augustine’s official observation of the global event that will feature more than 500 events this September. “Peace and sustainability are major concerns worldwide, and the guiding principles for this global event,” said Michael Rothenberg, co-founder of 100 Thousand Poets for Change. “We are in a world where it isn't just one issue that needs to be addressed. A common ground is built through this global compilation of local stories, which is how we create a true narrative for discourse to inform the future.”
