LEAPS AND STEPS: TOWARDS 100% RENEWABLE ENERGY
This year’s retreat opened with a presentation featuring uplifting examples of how practices of all kinds, all around the world, are shifting as we move towards a sustainable future. Some examples were large scale (leaps), and others smaller scale (steps), recognizing that change of all kinds is what is need to reach the tipping point for renewable energy to become the norm.
As in previous years, the event included a mixture of presentations, roundtable discussions and themed group discussions, along with delicious food featuring local produce. There were opportunities to network with like-minded friends and colleagues throughout the day.
This day-long event was open to the public and to Wintergreen Co-op members. Click here to visit the Wintergreen event page for more information.
