An informal, co-creative gathering of thinkers, doers and dreamers
To share and collaborate about the transition to a more sustainable way of life

This is a pilot event, and we hope to conduct more such events : small, easy and frequent, to deepen our connections and start doing things together. Due to capacity constraints, we have to limit the number of participants to 100. If we cross the capacity (a good problem to have!) by the time you register, we'll put you on waitlist, and at the next event you'll have priority. But there is an exhibition space that will be open to all during the two days. Registration closes on 12 July 2014 11:59pm.
