Speaker to address sustainability at High Mowing School workhop

Thursday, September 27, 2012

The Souhegan Transition Town Network and the High Mowing School are pleased to present noted facilitator and workshop leader Tina Clarke at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 30 in High Mowing’s Big Room. Tina will be the inaugural speaker in the speaker series throughout the Souhegan Valley during the coming months.

Tina Clark is a woman of many talents. She has been a workshop facilitator in the Transition movement in New England, has served as a consultant to Bill McKibben’s 350.org initiative, and has provided professional guidance and support to community leaders and campaigns for more than 20 years. Tina helped design and build a below-zero energy, passive solar-heated, Platinum LEED, low-toxic “Power House” in which she currently lives. She also helped found and develop a co-housing community in Amherst, Mass.

Tina will be speaking on community-building and resilience. With economic and meteorological instability forecast to continue, she offers suggestions on how can we best prepare and cope with these new realities. The talk will offer plenty of opportunity for audience participation. High school students are particularly welcome. The event is free and open to the public, though donations to defray Tina’s travel expenses and continue the speakers series are most welcome.

The Souhegan Transition Town Network is a group of local residents who seek to foster a healthy, local economy based on sustainability. For more information, email Michael Conley at michael@michaelconley.net or souhegan-transition@yahoogroups.com, or visit their group on Facebook.
