I’ve been in communication with Mariyam Medovaya, the Speaking Tour Coordinator for Dancing Rabbit EcoVillage. The executive director of Dancing Rabbit EcoVillage, Ma’ikwe Schaub Ludwig, is doing a tour in 2015 and I have invited her to Boise! There are 5 topics to choose from and we can decide to do a half-day, full-day, or 2-day workshop. We have yet to confirm, but I’d like to do this soon. I’ll check in tomorrow night at our social gathering to see how much interest there is in organizing and participating.
About the workshop leader: Ma’ikwe Schaub Ludwig is a pioneering sustainability educator who heads up Ecovillage Education US, and a member of the Board of Directors of the Fellowship for Intentional Community. Her work integrates ecological, economic, social, political and personal approaches and technologies for a strongly holistic view of what real sustainability takes, and we expect the talk to have broad appeal across the disciplines. Ma’ikwe is a regular writer for Communities magazine and is the author of Passion as Big as a Planet: Evolving Eco- Activism in America. Ma’ikwe is a dynamic speaker, and she has been featured on TEDx in 2013 with her talk on sustainability.
A Full Workshop would be 2 days, although shorter versions are available.
Starting a Sustainable Community
The dates Mariyam gave me are March 2-3, March 17-18 and May 17-20 for this Spring, other options are possible for the Fall. I’m thinking that May 17-20 would be good and that would give us some time to organize.
