“At last, many of us are waking up to the realities of climate change and the related crises of economic disparity, species loss, and an increasingly politicized fossil fuel industry. This is a turning point for humanity – less about ‘what should I do?’, than ‘who am I, and how do I wish to show up at this time?’ Together we can learn to transform our fear into renewed resolve, to create communities of resilience and peace, and build the future our hearts long for.” – Rhonda Fabian
The intimate Summit, limited to 100 attendees, coincides with Findhorn Community’s CCC19 Conference in Northern Scotland, and will receive streamed Keynotes from Findhorn Community, including leading climate thinkers, Charles Eisenstein, Vandana Shiva, and Bill McKibben, among others.
As an official Hub of the Findhorn Conference, the April gathering will convene in the beautiful, thriving Transition Town of Media, Pennsylvania. Venues are easily walkable and wheelchair accessible. Early Bird pricing until April 1, is $135 for the four-day conference, with day-passes and financial assistance available.
