Description

Building a Village Together: A conversation with international nonprofits about building local and regional capacity

This conversation is intended to foster dialog and learning between those who are building sustainabily and resiliency in their own communities around the world. Geographic locations include: Caribbean and Haiti; regions of Africa; the Balkans; ;and regions of Latin America. With a bioregional, place-based lens, we are particularly interested in efforts that have been created by local actors, either by those in the communities or by expatriots from the communities, and are working in partnership with international actors. As international citizens, we are asking how do we collaborate with and support these efforts?

Keynote Speaker: Patrick Lucien, Co-Founder of EDEM
