~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NWEI's hallmark courses provide an enjoyable, supportive setting in which to examine personal values and habits, engage in stimulating conversation, create meaningful community, and consider ways to take action towards creating a more sustainable future.

There is no outside presenter or teacher of these discussion courses, the role of facilitator rotates with each meeting. These programs emphasize individual responsibility, the importance of a supportive community, and the dual need to walk lightly on and to take action on behalf of the Earth.
