SEEDS OF CHANGE CONFERENCE OCTOBER 9-11, 2015
Over the past decade, presenters and participants at the Omega Center for Sustainable Living’s conferences have added an important voice to the national conversation on our environmental, economic and social challenges and opportunities..
By bringing together thought leaders and activists working on diverse and interconnected issues central to a more regenerative future, a compelling and hopeful vision is emerging toward a socially just, inclusive, and ecologically sustainable society
This year Omega continues the conversation with Seeds of Change: Cultivating the Commons.Vandana Shiva and Winona LaDuke will be back, joined by renowned water advocate Maude Barlow, consumer activist and political commentator Ralph Nader, ecological visionary John Todd, and grassroots seed freedom and food justice advocates Ken Greene, Natasha Bowens, Jalal Sabur, and Will Allen.
Whether you are already working closely with these issues, or are interested in learning more, we invite you to be part of a growing community coming together to protect and care for the commons, including the pivotal right to save and share seeds, the necessity of stewarding our water resources, as well as transparency in labeling and access to healthy food.
Saturday evening features a free public event with Vandana Shiva, Winona LaDuke, Ralph Nader, and Maude Barlow followed by music with Spiritchild.
