Earth Calendar for May 16th and May 17th

May 16, 2014

"Creating Sustainable Communities" is the 8th EarthSpirit Rising conference sponsored by Imago, scheduled for July 25th, 26th and 27th at Grailville

Speakers and workshop sessions will look at many ways to approach constructing sustainable communities, both purpose-built and retrofitted, as a way to change the culture. The focus of the conference will be on adapting urban and suburban neighborhoods, using existing buildings, to create places for people to live that place Earth and ecology first by limiting human impact and by honoring the diversity of life and cultures within a community for the benefit of future generations. The conference promotes intentional communities, and many kinds of sustainable communities will be featured in presentations and discussions during the conference, which is also a call for action. The conference organizers hope to instill a sense of urgency and hope, to make attendees ready to act to achieve sustainable, intentional communities in our neighborhoods, cities, and towns.   To find out more about the conference, a list of keynote speakers or for early registration discounts through June 16th, visit the website or call 513-921-5124
