What would our world look like if we were able to catalyze the energy of the millions of people that are attending music events world wide? What would happen if we used that energy to create community gardens, naturally built structures, water catchment systems, river cleanups, reforestation, all while educating people along the way? In the fall of 2014, music artist The Polish Ambassador (www.thepolishambassador.com) led a team of earth activists, community instigators and permaculture educators to set out for an answer.
The result was a monumentally successful 35 city tour known as The Polish Ambassador’s Permaculture Action Tour. The day after every single performance, show-goers were encouraged to come out and actively participate in ecological and social permaculture efforts in their own city.
As fate would have it, the nation-wide tour was but a seedling for a bigger movement. Action days are now being fully integrated into festival culture, popping up all over the world.
But what about other artists with other inspirations? What about artists who are interested in supporting social justice? How about homeless rights? How about herbal medicines hitting the mainstream? Youth education? The list goes on….
Actiondays.us is a 501 c3 Non-Profit whose mission is to help fuel these initiatives through funding, resources, manpower, and a lot of heart. Actiondays.us will be a platform for artists and fans to plug into to create real change with their hands/minds. A concert happens AND we harness the energy of the concert-goers to make our communities stronger, more resilient, more diverse, healthier, a more beautiful life-experience for all.
