2014 Global Earth Exchange
The 2014 Global Earth Exchange was held on Saturday, June 21st at locations around the world. THANK YOU to everyone who participated! This was our 5th global event, and we had many large groups holding Earth Exchanges in places like India and Peru. Wow. The slideshow below displays photos of many of the events.
For a detailed look at individual events, go to our 2014 Map.
There are 5 steps to an Earth Exchange:
1. Go with friends (or on your own) to a wounded place.
2. Share your stories of what the place means to you.
3. Get to know the place as it is now.
4. Make a bird of materials you find on site (twigs, stones, sand, trash).

Radical Joy for Hard Times is a worldwide community of people committed to finding and making beauty in wounded places. Reconnecting with these places, sharing our stories of loss and despair, and making acts of beauty there, we transform the land, reconnect people and the places that nourish them, and empower ourselves to make a difference in the way we live on Earth.
