This convening is an opportunity to center equity in our conversations about the social and environmental justice work taking place in New England. This gathering is a space where grassroots organizers, colleagues and supporters convene to network, share stories and dig into both issue- and process-based sessions. We work with a planning committee ahead of each event to ensure a broad range of lived experiences and perspectives weigh in as we do the planning.
What to expect in participating:- Attending 3, 1-hour committee calls. Call dates: Meeting #1 Feb 18-21, Meeting #2 April 15-18, and Meeting #3 May 13-16;- Online correspondence and input (via email, SurveyMonkey) on workshop planning.
Aspects of the event we'll consider:- Review & approval of skeleton agenda (agenda items, balance & timing);- Approval of workshop Learning Objectives (previously created), adjusting as needed for this event;- Review & selection of workshop offerings from the open call for presenters;- Recommendations & selection of keynote speaker.
Other considerations:- Outreach & promotion: You can expect to be asked to share about the event (both the open call for presenters and attendee registration) within your established networks, contacts and/or social media. A media package with links and language will be provided.- **As a modest thank you, planning committee members are invited to join us at the event free of charge.
FYI: A second, one-day RootSkills Fall Workshop will take place mid-Nov in southeast MA. This is a change in format from 2018's two-day conference event.
