It has been a beautiful year of growth for the Carbon Economy Series. To spread knowledge of a cleaner world to people everywhere has been our goal since the very beginning, and this year, we were able to achieve this in a great way. It is time to look to the future though, and with the New Year comes a chance for the world to take a fresh grasp on the practice of sustainable living.
The Clean Economy Series has been busy filling up the 2014 calendar with wonderful events hosted by the most knowledgeable people in the greening industry. Nate Downey will return at the end of February with a two-day workshop titled “Water is the New Solar.” In April, we will welcome Toby Hemenway to Dallas to lead a talk on “Urban Sustainable Principles and Practices.” This, friends, is only the beginning of our plans for the upcoming year.
Over the past months, we have been putting our hearts and souls into the building of an event to take place at the end of January: the Clean Economy Conference. This conference will teach building resilience through sustainable practices. This is a four-day event, kicking off the evening of January 30th with a farm to table/celebrity chef Gourmet Steward’s Dinner fundraiser. The following three days will see Joel Salatin, a third generation alternative farmer, leading workshops and talks on Local Food Production, teaching that feeding the world via backyard gardens is nothing short of possible.
Simply put, 2013 has been an invaluable year, an innovative one in which the Carbon Economy Series brought people together to take part in greening the world. But the New Year will bring new possibilities and the chance to spread more knowledge to more households around the world. We are very much looking forward to 2014, and we hope you’ll join us in making this year the best one yet, for the sake of our earth and every being it holds.
