b07Nov - Spirit of the Land ConferenceIn view of the Climate Change marches around the world yesterday and the UN meeting on Tuesday, it may be good to be aware of a local option of looking at some of these big issues:

Attached is a poster to our Respecting the Land: Transition to a New Economy conference for Friday night Nov. 7th and all day Saturday Nov. 8th.

Our plenary speakers include James Magnus-Johnston from the Centre for the Advancement of a Steady State Economy, Winnipeg, Mike Unrau, from Calgary Dollars and Green Calgary, and Duane Guina from Farmland Legacies out of Wynyard Saskatchewan.

Beyond that a key focus will be break-out groups in the morning and afternoon of Saturday with over 20 “local” experts/innovators in energy, agriculture, community, wealth of being, local business. Some of the “locals” are coming from Edmonton ( possibly the net-zero living architect of our Camrose City Hall) showing that in our climate we can cost-effectively use very energy efficient ways of building and living.)

For early bird prices up to October 31st, it is good to have you and your students register in the next weeks at www.spiritoftheland.ca.
