Rescheduled Resilience Conference

MountainKeepers has rescheduled the Resilience Conference for January 24, 2009. It will be held in the cafeteria at Watauga County High School from 9 am to 3 pm.

Join with us to address the question "How can we create a more resilient community?"

We will be using open space technology and everyone will have a voice. No experts will attend to give us answers, we are creating the dialog and seeking solutions. Your voice is important to this process and our future.

This is a zero waste event, so everyone bring your own coffee/drink mug/water bottle.
Instead of printing a lot of information, we will provide the information to everyone via our web site.

Share this information with everyone you know who should be there.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Plans are being made to reschedule our Resilience conference for late January. As soon as we secure the date it will be posted.

As we move further into this season of giving and Thanksgiving, think about how to be green when thinking about giving for the holidays this year. You may even completely rethink what a gift is. Share your green gift ideas with us.
