Thanks to the excellent work of activists and organizers across the region, New England is home to many thriving grassroots efforts to create economic and environmental justice by transitioning away from fossil fuels towards sustainable food, energy, and transportation systems.
How might we increase the effectiveness of our work by connecting with one another?
Please join us on Saturday, October 20th as we consider this exciting question. You’ll have the chance to meet folks from across New England, share stories, think systemically about the region, and consider next steps. There will be plenty of opportunities for informal conversation and connection.
Hosted by Transition Keene, Transition Newburyport, the Jamaica Plain New Economy Transition, and the New England Grassroots Environment Fund (NEGEF).
Travel stipends and some in-home hospitality in Boston are available. Please contact Sarah Byrnes (firstname.lastname@example.org, 617.477.8630 x307) for more information.
