Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

This event, on February 5, 2015, created a talking circle model to ask the following questions: How can we create new ways of being to help build sustainable communities? Perceiving Earth and all her inhabitants as living systems helps us explore this core question. With the support of Charles Hopkins and other community leaders, we explored how ethics and principles can be embodied in our lives and work to create a sustainable future.

This modified fishbowl model had concentric circles, with the audience in the Outer Circle invited to listen and ask questions of the Talking Circle.
