Hi Sue,

Yes I'd like to be on the International Group too.  I use the Nature Principle a lot in my work so very very glad that you and Richard are around.

By the way, Radio am774 in Beijing is doing a series based on my book Recovery of the Heart, Dialogues with People Working towards a Sustainable Beijing, throughout July.  We will do more shows throughout the year.  Perhaps there might be interest in participating - taped or live comments in the Chat Room.  Would love to have someone from C&NN! You/we are a wonderful idea whose time has come!
