Rooted and Rising: An Intergenerational Dialogue and Solutions Salon

The New Leaders Initative is launching a new event series, called Rooted and Rising: An Intergenerational Dialogue and Solutions Salon.
These events, geared towards youth ages 13-25, are all about orienting participants towards new ways of thinking about age-old environmental and social justice 'problems'.

This is an RSVP ONLY event, so complete the survey below and find out more about this exciting series:

Our inagural event, "Waste Not, Want Not" begins at 6:15pm on August 24th. "Waste Not, Want Not" will bring together Dianna Cohen from the Plastics Pollution Coalition, Alex Lin - 2007 Brower Youth Award Winner, and Bridgett Luther of Cradle to Cradle Product Innovation, to discuss solutions to the problem of waste in our society.

Be sure to complete the survey as soon as possible to reserve your spot at the first Rooted and Rising! Space is *highly* limited, as we feel that smaller groups, comprised mostly of youth under the age of 25, will give more opportunity for interaction, idea-sharing and networking.

We will provide food, drink and merriment but we need you to RSVP to reserve your spot by completing the survey:
