Interesting. It can only help, I’m sure.

If I lived closer, I would love to attend 3 days of brainstorming about solutions.

Ally Bean - April 12, 2017

I agree. I could groove on that kind of atmosphere.

2. L. Marie - April 11, 2017

Wow! What a great idea!

nrhatch - April 11, 2017

That’s what I thought. DC is a bit to far for me to attend this year, but maybe next year?

The Smithsonian…one of my favorite places.The rescuing the almost extinct segment sounds interesting.

The Smithsonian is awesome ~ a credit to the nation’s capital! Let’s hope we can rescue the “almost extinct” from extinction.

The images didn’t fully download for me Nancy, but it does sound like something worthwhile! Thanks for sharing. 💛

The links are working for me . . .

Sometimes when I page won’t open for me, I close the window and try again. That works 9 out of 10 times.

Val Boyko - April 12, 2017

Works now. Thanks Nancy!

I would enjoy this conference immensely! I would love to see more events like this offered around the nation/world, certainly. The website offers good reading, though. Thank you!

It’s a great way to spread optimism about solutions for a sustainable future. Happy Earth Day!
