Where Monday's conversation, "Awakening the Dreamer," was more personally oriented, today we will discuss cultural transformation or "changing the dream." If collective transformation still depends upon each of us doing our part, what are the foundational leadership qualities of a "game changer?" Creative environmental engagement can be a transformative path of awakening and personal development. How? Join us to discuss what is required to "change the dream" and make sustainability an ongoing way of life that is both personally and collectively beneficial.
