For anyone who is not (or cannot be) in Cochabamba for the Conference  
of Mother Earth that is starting today, but would have liked to been  
there, some folks have put together a quite amazing array of options  
for anyone who is reading this (ie has a net connection) to plug in.

Self-explanatory.  And it comes from a trusted source; Nick Buxton has  
been acting as Media Liaison to the Plurinational Government of  
Bolivia for this conference.  Thanks, Nick, and for a great job !

> Launch: 20 April 2010
> The response to the World Peoples' Conference on Climate Change and  
> the Rights of Mother Earth has
> been overwhelming. When online registrations closed on Friday 16  
> April, more than 15,000 people had
> registered from 126 countries.
> However many thousands more have expressed their support and not  
> been able to attend due to lack of
> financial resources or because they are not flying for environmental  
> reasons. Most recently we have the
> sad news that hundreds of participants are unlikely to make it  
> because of the volcanic eruption in
> Iceland.
> That is why we have been hard at work with a Bolivian team, Mayfirst  
> collective from the US, and
> oneclimate.net from the UK and other groups to bring the conference  
> live to everyone in the world who
> has an internet connection.
> Live webcasts of the main plenaries
> Some of the main plenaries will be broadcast live on the website  
> with all of the sessions being recorded
> and archived.
> Reports from Working Groups
> Daily video reports, blogs and notes on the discussion of the 17  
> working groups
> Democracy Now moves to Bolivia
> The award-winning Democracy Now show has moved its entire operations  
> to Bolivia for a week. Tune
> in daily to their live show embedded on the conference website.
> Radio show
> Follow the conference through a live audio feed in Spanish and  
> English and via programming by http://
> www.earthcycles.net which looks to bring Indigenous elders' point of  
> view into the conversation.
> Virtual meetings between Bolivia and worldwide cities
> Mayfirst collective is organising virtual meetings between people in  
> Bolivian and cities in US and
> elsewhere, at this point scheduled for April 20 at 7 pm Bolivian
