The Circle that Bridges Communities

August 17, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Northland Sustainable Solutions invites you to build bridges that move us toward personal and planetary transformation. We are acting together in environmental conversation for ecological restoration during three extraordinary events designed to celebrate our interconnection and shared responsibility.

Included in these three events is inspiration provided by Indigenous and international speakers.

August 17 – The ecology of community.
Tom Goldtooth, Gandhi Peace Award recipient and Executive Director of the Indigenous Environmental Network will speak about a platform for Mother Earth post-Paris and COP21 and the Future of Humanity. 

Tom takes a serious look at what the United Nations Climate Conference accomplished and what was left undone. We’ll circle around to what we must address now, in community, on the front lines of climate change.

Register today. Save your place and be a part of this important community-building event. If you wish to register but do not want to use Eventbrite, please contact us at our website, email or call 612-388-2542 to let us know that you are coming. Space may be limited.
