Join in for a public lecture by Dr. Karen Litfin, UW professor who embarked upon a journey to many of the world's ecovillages -- intentional communities at the cutting-edge of sustainable living – to explore how we can make a difference in a world of dwindling natural resources. From rural to urban, high tech to low tech, spiritual to secular, she discovered an under-the-radar global movement making positive and radical changes from the ground up.
Now Professor Litfin is coming to Portland to share what she learned during her ecovillage research and share highlights from her newly published book, "Ecovillage: Lessons for Sustainable Community."
Thurs, Jan 9th, 7-9pm at Ecotrust: http://www.ecotrust.org/events/calendar.html
She's also talking at PSU at noon on the 10th if you can't make this one! http://www.pdx.edu/sustainability/events/lessons-worlds-ecovillages-karen-litfin
