The Sustainable Living Conference
“Sustainable Living Empowerment and Enrichment Conference”
Saturday, June 15, 2013, in Smith Hall of The Rutgers Newark campus of Rutgers University, 101 Warren Street, Newark, NJ 07102, the Sustainable Living Empowerment and Enrichment Conference presents 20 speakers from a variety of disciplines. The speakers will address the question: how to use their own values and experiences to inspire others to form healthy, sustainable communities. The event is free and open to the public, and lasts from 10:00 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The purpose of the conference is to inspire and empower attendees, so they become active participants toward the goal of building healthy, sustainable communities. The speakers will use their own experiences and values to convey how they have been driven by their passions to various achievements. From urban farming to wellness to solar technology and climate change, the speakers will share information and experiences that assist with the creation of sustainable communities. Empowerment is a multidimensional social process that helps people gain control over their own lives. It is a process that fosters power in people for use in their own lives, communities and in society by acting on issues they define as important.
The event was organized by members of the Newark Community Garden Coalition with the support of the Greater Newark Conservancy, Newark Science and Sustainability Working Group, and Essex County 4-H. The Newark Community Garden Coalition (NCGC) is a coalition of gardeners and urban farmers. Taking the approach of social entrepreneurship, they work to enrich the overall quality of life in Newark, New Jersey by developing, supporting and promoting city gardens, produce farms and other agricultural space.

Our booth at the ‘Yoga by the Sea’ festival in Asbury Park happened on 9/23 and went well.
We did a good job spreading the word, handing out 325 DVDs!!
Thanks to Brian and Vince for supplying those. Thanks to Elliot for being so aggressive with the One Planet Project. Emails have been delivered to OPP Central.
We had a canopy, rug, tables and chairs and large signs. We hooked ‘em with free water and apples then put Addendum and Moving Forward in their hands.
Yoga brains are receptive to our message. We will seek out more.
