Eco-Leader Training

January 7th-9th, 2011
Lifebridge Sanctuary in Rosendale, New York 


Looking for a fun, engaging way to get your family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors involved in the environmental movement? Do you want to motivate folks in your area to take action and work together to find solutions to our environmental crises?
We invite you to join us in the mountains of upstate New York for our Eco-Leader Training. 

During this all-expenses paid weekend, you’ll build the leadership and community building skills you need to get your community excited and on-board.  You’ll take part in a dynamic series of workshops with inspirational community leaders and activists from grassroots environmental organizations, all the while taking in the beautiful surroundings, enjoying delicious (organic!) meals, and interacting with fellow participants who are eager to go forth and change the world.
The Eco-Leader Training will teach you how to use the No Impact Week, an immersive, educational weeklong experiment in low impact living, as a tool for building an environmentally conscious, action-oriented community. To learn more about No Impact Week, click here. When you return home, you will be ready to go out and empower your community to make a difference.
As mentioned, the weekend is all-expenses paid. In return for your participation, we ask that you commit to running at least three No Impact Weeks in your community in the upcoming year. In order to really learn how to run a No Impact Week, we also ask that you complete a virtual No Impact Week with us prior to the Eco-Leader Training.
