Look Ma! This Week’s Weekly Chatter Written No-Handed

Have you been to the Great Lakes Bioneers Conference?

It’s crazy to think, but the annual conference is in the 10th year in Traverse City and set for next weekend, Friday-Sunday. This year’s theme is right up the MyWHaT alley: “Reclaiming the Commons” and kicks off with a keynote by nationally acclaimed author on public spaces Jay Walljasper Friday morning.

On Saturday, your’s truly is leading a discussion about the value and power of consequential strangers, a term adopted from a book by Melinda Blau and Karen L. Fingerman. Other topics include issues in education, agriculture, energy, sustainable economics and health.

Online registration is closed. Walk in registration is open each day of the conference.
