For two weeks (from 24 October - 5 November) Rabbi Soetendorp, Michael Slaby and Ashley Young traveled through India to record Feather messages of moral and spiritual leaders, young activists and visionaries, and to take part in the Earth Charter + 10 “Framework for a Sustainable World” Conference held in Ahmedabad.

This conference concluded with a “threads of sustainability” ceremony organized in Mahatma Gandhi’s historical ashram in Ahmedabad where Gandhi’s hand-spun cotton was passed from speaker to speaker. Participants included His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, His Holiness Vishwaguru Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda, Sr. Valeriane Bernand of the Brahma Kumaris, Rabbi Soetendorp and several young people from India and Bangladesh.
