Connecting for Change 2013

10.08.2013 · Posted in Uncategorized

Connecting for Change is a conference held every year focusing on a wide variety of social and environmental justice issues. This year will be the 9th annual CFC conference and will be held at the Marion Institute from October 25-27 in New Bedford Mass. Their website describes the event as:

“…an annual three-day, solutions-based gathering that brings together a diverse audience to create deep and positive change in their communities. This internationally acclaimed event summons environmental, industry and social justice innovators to bring focus on food and farming, health and healing, green business, indigenous knowledge, environmental and social justice, women and youth empowerment, spirituality and sustainability, all working to catalyze a movement to heal our world. In 2012, over 2,500 people gathered in New Bedford and were privileged to hear from stellar keynote speakers including Bill McKibben, Sandor Katz, Ameena Matthews and Arn Chorn-Pond. In all, over 100 presenters and 50 workshops and tours ignited the conscience of the attendees. This year we will roll up our sleeves and harvest tangible, practical solutions to the specific challenges we face here in the Northeast and the world at-large. We are planning remarkable three days of live keynote presentations, afternoon workshops, a inclusive family program, an extensive Youth Initiative program, a downlink of the 24th Annual Bioneers Conference in California, an exhibition hall featuring sustainable businesses and organizations, a community action center, films, music, art installations, a farmers’ market and local & organic food.”
