Hi Susan, thanks for signing up. Feel free to customize your page, post questions, thoughts, articles, photos, videos, make friends, message privately, join or create groups. We look forward to your participation in anchoring our vision with your diverse skill set as we seek to live more sustainably and equitably. Your training makes you admirably suited to lead the Psychology of Change programs. Please share your ideas, energy and passion.
We meet WEEKLY due to the enormity of the challenges and the urgency needed to address the issues that face us - Tuesdays 7 pm at Emergence Community Arts Collective, 733 Euclid Street NW, WDC 20001. We've been following a schedule something like this:
1st week - Food & Farming
2nd week - Transition
3rd week - Film
4th week - Planning & Networking
5th week when there's one - Special guest
Due to the holidays this has been thrown off a bit. Our final meeting for the year will be on Tuesday Dec 23 when we'll meet at a restaurant to celebrate our time together and resolve to accomplish even more in the New Year.
Let's together create a brave new world.
