Events Season Begins
Two events in partnership with FIC
by Sky Blue, FIC Exec. Director
Conferences, convergences, and festivals are like temporary intentional communities. People come together, for a shared purpose, with shared values, sharing space for mutual benefit. Events focused on intentional community provide opportunities to both learn about and experience community in a powerful way. Join us in May for these two great events!
The 2017 National Cohousing Conference, May 19-21, hosted by Germantown Commons in Nashville, TN, promises an amazing lineup of offerings, from innovative approaches to developing new and affordable communities, to potent ways to enhance our vibrant communities.
It will cover cohousing basics as well as hot topics in sustainability and resiliency in both living green through energy efficiency, shared resources, and greener building, to how community sustains us for measurably healthier lifestyles.
The program will offer a tantalizing soup to nuts menu of session choices—something for everyone: those who are living it, those who are developing it, and those who are just dreaming about it. And with all of that there will still be plenty of time for conversations in the hallways, tours, and fun! Register today!
