Saving the planet means creating a caring culture. Social ties are central to health, happiness, and civic life. Yet our frantic, distracted culture makes it difficult to maintain and deepen social connections. Trust and civil discourse are in decline.

  • Have better conversations
  • Improve your satisfaction with the communities you’re in
  • Be more effective in engaging people
  • Ideal for business, non-profits, activism
  • Follow-up group for those interested

Led by Cecile Andrews, author of Less is More, Slow is Beautiful, and Circle of Simplicity. Cecile will also be speaking at the Green Festival at 11am on Sat, Nov 6th.

Cecile Andrews has her doctorate in education from Stanford where she teaches in the Stanford Health Improvement Program. She is on the board for Take Back Your Time, and is active in Transition Palo Alto and Seattle’s Gross National Happiness Project.

Sponsored by Transition Palo Alto, World Centric and Silicon Valley Action Network (SVAN).
