Worldwide Earth Festival in Canada Names Domlebo Official Spokesman

Domlebo

On June 12th 2010 at 7:30pm, writer & composer Domlebo will be part of the festival kick off at Café Bistro TribuTerre for the 6th edition of the Worldwide Earth Festival in Canada.

Domlebo’s green awareness is no secret as he proudly wears clothing creations from SOAP (made of recycled clothing) and offsets his greenhouse gas emissions through ZEROCO2. His considerable contribution to an environmental and humanistic cause during his upcoming summer tour in Quebec was one the main factors in his selection.

As part of the Worldwide Earth Festival, Domlebo will be performing 5 shows in the Montreal , Rimouski and Mont Tremblant area’s during the festival, in addition to many other sponsored activities around Quebec in celebration of the 2010 edition.
About: The Worldwide Earth Festival is a non-profit organization, which seeks to educate     people wishing to join an environmental, fair, and respectable cause. Represented in over 15 countries, the festival will simultaneously be celebrated across the globe, demonstrating the importance of the union of information, generations, and actions for   the preservation of the Earth.

The Worldwide Earth Festival in Canada is linked to a common global charter, which includes all of the countries hosting the Earth Festival around the world. The charter stands out, thanks to its inclusion of an agreement to act without political, religious or dogmatic mandates, and by encouraging membership through behavior, which is respectful of differences.

The global mission of the festival is to unite all the players of all the social and cultural media in achieving a common goal: preserving and contributing positively to our planet, and supporting noble causes for our environment. The “souche” initiative comes to us from France, where this charter was defined, and which promises to act without moralizing in order to encourage the general public, in an educational and fun way, to embrace the principles of solidarity, fraternity and ecology in an inspirational manner!   http://www.festivaldelaterre.org
           
Since the festival’s premiere edition in 2005, the Worldwide Earth Festival in Canada     has been entirely run by volunteers and is open to everyone in promoting global   solidarity. Moreover, the Worldwide Earth Festival in Canada is protected by a  trademark and you can contribute to its expansion by soliciting a license to use it in order to promote its vision.
