Workshop for environmental activists

Written by 

A three-day workshop called “Inspiring Ourselves to Save the Planet: Courage in the Face of Melting Glaciers” will be held Oct. 21-24 led by Janisse Ray, environmental activist and author, at The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center in Highlands.

Both veterans and novices of the environmental movement will come together for inspiration to continue, broaden, and deepen their work in defense of the planet. There will be a dynamic blend of writing, dialogue, creative thinking and deep listening.  “We hope that many people take advantage of the chance to spend three interactive days with this extraordinary leader,” said Alisa Pykett, Program Director. The three-day workshop is sponsored by The Mountain Institute for Social Change.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
