Bill McKibben: Pursuing Prosperity and Local Sustainability:  McKibben, author of Deep Economy, challenges the notion of a growth economy and frames an important conversation about where to take our environment, economy, and society.
Timeless Inspirations: Hear chamber music composed in a WWII concentration camp, see student artwork inspired by the music, and learn how the experience of "place" can fire the creative imagination.
Faith-Based Gardens for Wildlife and People:  Explore how to develop wildlife habitats, vegetable gardens, and meditation and memory refuges that connect urban congregations with their neighborhoods and communities.
