Moving Past Fossil Fuels Toward a Brighter Future and a Healthier Planet

On September 24, 2011 join people from across the state and a fast-growing coalition of civic organizations, faith communities, non-profits and businesses as we converge on New Haven with one common goal: moving past fossil fuels toward a brighter future and a healthier planet. Many towns are hosting events in the morning, and then we’ll all come together on the New Haven Green at 4pm on 9/24 for a rally, critical mass bike ride, music, talkback with local/state political leaders, opportunities to get involved in your community, and a bike-powered outdoor screening of the movie Wall-E!

For the shoreline, we’re planning a ride to the New Haven Green (~30 miles) starting at noon at the Liberty Green in Clinton or, alternately, a ride leaving Clinton at 1:30 for the Guilford Train Station (~12 miles) to catch the 3:13 train to New Haven. Either way, Shoreline East will provide the return trip from the New Haven State Street Station on either the 8 pm or 10 pm train. Anyone who is interested in joining either of these rides, please contact Debbie Lundgren of the Bike & Pedestrian Alliance of Clinton (lundgren10@comcast.net, 860-669-1077).

Moving Connecticut is part of the global Moving Planet Day organized by the grass-roots climate action group 350.org (www.350.org). For more information on Moving Planet Day, check out www.moving-planet.org. The website for ‘Moving Connecticut’ is 350ct.org/move.

Hope you can get moving and join us for a day of action!
