Brad Love from Angel Productions talked with us about Symphony Awakening, a concert and expo he organized that was sponsored by Texas Green Network, Austin EcoNetwork, One World Theater and others. The event benefited SafePlace, Urban Patchwork and One World Theater Children’s Outreach Programs.
The musical performance tells the true story about the Achuar tribe, a people indigenous to the Amazon and a green revolution. The unique tribe from deep in the rainforest of the Amazon has issued a call for help from people of the North to save their rain forest and the rest of the world. There is a now powerful grass roots interest in sustainability and consumers are awaking to the fact that they can have an influence, they can make being green profitable.
The Austin EcoNetwork Expo following the symphony gave people the opportunity to meet green businesses, farmers, environmental organizations and government agencies that are helping advance a healthy, sustainable community.
