HumanEarth is a series of exhibitions centered on the theme of human interaction with nature, to raise awareness for the ways in which we harm the planet and also the ways that we are living in harmony with it.

After several years of commitment to the evolution of environmental understanding, a reshaping and shifting of administrative responsibilities is under way. As you probably know by now, Ecojunki no longer functions within its original context. The HumanEarth Exhibitions now function as an entity, in association with Copart.

The main focus of the HumanEarth exhibitions is to create awareness and to encourage change.

We would appreciate aid finding the following:

1. One marketing assistant

2. One administrative assistant

At this stage, these positions are offered on an unpaid internship basis with the promise of future compensation.

350 Moving Planet - Cape Town

"In Cape Town, a collection of green leaders have come together to create a massive event that will celebrate environmental successes while simultaneously demanding change from our leaders.

The Cape Town Moving Planet event will feature a huge march/parade with floats, costumes, puppets and more, with thousands of people, young and old, marching to make change. The event will seek to raise awareness of climate-friendly alternatives to damaging practices like driving your car, cutting down trees, and many other harmful actions. As fun and exciting as it will be, the event will also be a petition, demanding change in the policies and programs put forth by our government that damage the environment.

Alongside the march we will also be hosting an exciting bike ride to promote cycling as an active mode of transportation.

The event should be very exciting and seeks to represent all members of the Cape Town community. We would love it if you got involved, as we want this to be the most powerful and exciting event to date. We are still in the early planning stages of this event, so more specific details like the time and location are to come, but we are excited and hope you are too!"

Do you want to be part of the MOOP task team? Then contact the Afrika Burn organizers. Here's what they've sent out as their call for action:


Do you know what it is? It stands for Matter Out Of Place, it's refers to rubbish, trash, and anything that does not belong where it lies. Its what there was alot of left in Tankwa Town after the last event. Its what we gave you a big lap on the wrist about in the last newsletter. We believe it happens because of laziness, lack of planning, lack of caring and probably a good done of not enough education.......So to this end we are staring a MOOP Task Team led by the fabulous Shani Judes.

The team is not there to pick up the MOOP, but to EDUCATE to erradicate MOOP at AfrikaBurn in creative and clever ways. They going to be all over MOOP and MOOPERS like a rash in the next while. Does the MOOP problem irritate the crap out of you? Get involved, join the team and send in your ideas to
