World Team Now will be organizing the following side event at the United Nations Rio +20
RIO Panel on Humanity & Environment = Our World’s Resources
Here are photos from the event
The framework and Foundation for a World Constitution
For our Environment, so humanity can live in better balance with our world’s resources
We all know that what happens in one part of the world will affect another, and the large scale catastrophic environmental challenges, like the Deep Horizon Oil Spill, Chernobyl, and Fukushima. There are many other environmental catastrophes that effect our common collective resources and this dialogue is to explore a better approach to regulating responsibility and responding in such a way that has both the public health and environmental resources prioritized over corporate, or an individual government’s approach with being first cost, expense, and liability driven.
We intend to begin a dialogue using a panel format about the content of global enforceable policy that plans how to move rapidly for welfare of humanity and our earth, and our collective natural environmental resources. This panel’s goal is to ignite a communication to dialogue about what would be in such a powerful document and evaluate it within the framework of the US Constitution, the European Convention of Human Rights and other historical documents that generated freedom and responsibility for a higher good and for a more just, sustainable, and balanced future. Our goal is to arrive at universal tenants that contributes towards a global agreement around energy policy – specifically, one that would contribute to UNCSD’s outcome regarding global enforceable policy related to energy and our environment.
The discussion will be approached from four different perspectives: legal, scientific, humanitarian, and theological.
World Team Now’s panel is headed by World Team Now Board Member former US Ambassador of the United States, Caruso Family Chair in Law, Douglas Kmiec, and Founder/President of World Team Now, Suzanne Maxx.
The panel will be comprised of dignitaries, leading thinkers in policy and law, VIPs, scientific experts, and theologians. Invited panelist TBA.
The UNCSD Secretariat has approved the side event requested by our organization during the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Lead Organizer: World Team Now
Co-organizers: Tcktcktck, GCCA
Title: RIO Panel on Humanity & Environment = Our World’s Resources
Date & Time Slot: 18 June 2012, 11:30 – 13:00
Venue (tentative): T-3 (capacity 140) (RioCentro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
World Team Now will be organizing the following off site side event at the United Nations Rio +20 People's Summit
This will be a continuation of World Team Now’s panel side-event Humanity & Environment = Our World’s Resources – approached through not just the mind, and thought but what touches the heart and soul.
The event will be for all people to hear through song, and personal stories how they were “called” to use their life force, for the earth. We will learn from the inner personal journey since the 1992 Earth Summit (and prior) where it all started, and what is the burning dream for the future. Where does this live in regards to individual actions, international policy, and how can we approach the manifestation of global transformation. We will hear from many icons that have walked the path of the hero for our earth. This is the inspiration needed for the next 20 years and beyond of the environmental movement so humanity could live in better balance with our resources.
Music and storytelling allow the environmental journey to be centered on what universally touches all people’s hearts and souls. We will explore how to move our future generation from the heart and soul of our humanity with the courage to act for our world.

Venice Beach, California--- Skaters from around the world used their own energy to demonstrate clean transportation—World Team Now helped promote all forms of renewable energy: solar, wind, tidal, geothermal and more. Skating is one of the cleanest forms of transportation, and we promoted the Electric Vehicle wave about to break.
The non-profit World Team Now’s founder Suzanne Maxx shared about The Global Work Day 10-10-10 events at an Assemble for the youth at Our Lady of Malibu School. There was a short discussion about renewable energy options, sports for transportation, and the emerging Electric Vehicles, all to get to 350.
World Team Now Earth Day Features the Earth Day 2010
In Malibu, California our World Team Now’s founder and President, Suzanne Maxx returned to where she taught school at Our Lady of Malibu as a Guest Speaker for an Earth Day for a School wide, K-8 Student Assembly with the student council, and Principals Suzanne Ricci, and Edith O’Brian. Suzanne spoke about renewable energy, natural resources, and how choices people make affect their future. Examples of uses of different energy sources were defined such as solar; wind, tidal, geothermal, and how we have the possibility to get energy from different sources like the earth, the air, the sun, and the water. There were demonstrations with a kinetic ball that made light when it bounced, and the students gathered around the hybrid vehicle Suzanne had parked in the center of the school yard assembly, that had a portable fold out solar photovoltaic (PV) panel placed above the vehicle’s dashboard. Suzanne explained people have a choice to shield or block the sun or use the resource. This portable PV panel charges AA batteries and demonstrated how the solar panels could be used to power a host of devices youth use, especially their toys and games. Suzanne engaged the youth explaining how their home, the emerging electric vehicles and renewable energy sources, had to do with their future. Suzanne passed on the passion that she had brought forth to Copenhagen at the United Nation’s Climate Conference last year, COP15.
With support from faculty and students at Our Lady of Malibu School many pictures to launch World Team Now’s Contest were gathered. The 7th graders had the bulk of the winning art work, due to a prior related art assignment that gave them a wealth of material. There was a World Team Now cake shared with the students whose art work was chosen to exhibit at World Team Now’s booth at The City of Malibu’s EcoFair and the kids sang “Happy Earthday” with volunteers from World Team Now.
The City of Malibu celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day with an EcoFair on Saturday, April 24, followed by a collaborative performance of local actors, singers and dancers. World Team Now was part of the City of Malibu’s EcoFair Festival events. A day perfect to demonstrate wind energy, the local event attracted the community with an Earthday musical performance, and EcoFair Festival filled with attractions and booths that offered information to the public ranging from beach clean ups to solar. World Team Now had international volunteer’s there from China and Vietnam, that gave the this local event some international flavor with the graduate students from Pepperdine University lead by Yini Qiu from Shanghai, who works an intern with World Team.
World Team Now had a raffle for two dozen fabulous crown majesty roses from Organic Bouquet. Unfurling its large regal petals, this magnificent long-stem Esperance rose variety resembles a crown that could only be worn by Mother Nature herself. The large peony-like blooms have deep pink and cream tones that radiate exquisite beauty.
World Team Now had materials for the public to learn where to go to get more information about renewable energy initiatives, rebates and subsidies with their original “go to source” research sheet with links to websites and programs that raise awareness. This promoted city, state, and federal agencies, programs, global initiatives, such as those of the UN conferences plus both local and global non-profits organizations with programs that benefit the public. There was also information available form the World Team Now blog, on Climate Change, Electric Vehicles, COP15, and World Team Now’s participation in 350.org’s global day of action with aerial art with OLMalibu School Students, in Malibu, with CPDSA roller skaters in Central Park, and in the Salvation Army in Brooklyn where we made the images of numbers 350 using people, plus the net metering initiative in Lake Placid, New York.
The MalibuGreenMachine’s Jo Giese joined our World Team Now booth to pass out packages of seeds and tee shirts. This was a nice full circle for Suzanne Maxx who was a member of the volunteer community service group The PCH Beautification Committee that started the community sign board, now run by the Chamber of Commerce that evolved into the MalibuGreenMachine, which completed some of the local beautification projects in Malibu.
Our World Team Now Board member Walter Andrew's Walter kicked off Earth Day back his and Suzanne Maxx's mutual roots in Somerset, New Jersey, and represented us on the east coast. He produced this event which drew about a hundred people along with a team from his college fraternity Theta Psi Lamba. Green Forum 2010 was the first local community outreach on the environment for Earth Day in this region. At the Viridian Energy booth they sold clean energy, this was one of many ways the public had the opportunity to learn about the latest in renewable energy and technology. There were panels with line up speakers who were experts and presentations about selling on the market credits with county energy credits, NJ clean energy programs, and energy audits. Compost bins were auctioned off to the public, and there was information and activities for all ages. For Walter this local public outreach allowed his expertise to be shared. Walter was a Founding member of The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Division Chief of Drinking Water Region 2. Walter retired in 2009 and has joined World Team Now ‘s board as "Director of Energy and the Environment".
In Support of our partners: Hands Across the Sand on June 26th, 2010.
