In response to the Trump Election, two programs will be offered in early 2017 to bolster resolve of citizens to act with intention and hope.
January 28th – The Practice of Hope Workshop - Remaining hopeful and deepening resolve to effect change in times of uncertainty and resistance.
"By choice, hope is a vision of the possible, independent of news of the day; optimism is a feeling in the moment, which will wax and wane." - From Center’s workshop on the Practice of Hope.
Beginning February 27th - Local Agent of Change Training.
As a result of the election, the role of the local citizen agent of change has taken on elevated importance. Local action assures positive progress continues when federal leadership is absent, and it provides resistance to efforts of those who would exploit the natural world for short-term gain.
A message from the Co-Directors
Led by Co-Directors Jeanne and Dick Roy, Center programs empower participants to assume a hands-on leadership role in the Northwest sustainability movement by (1) being an intentional agent of change, (2) reducing personal impact on Earth, and/or (3) becoming an assertive advocate for Earth.
