Save the date for the 2015 Alverno Community Conference!

The annual Alverno Community Conference kicks off our Homecoming weekend, and will focus this year on Sustainability. Through our workshops, discussions, and creative activities, we will look beyond clichés to see how the diverse strands of our community life can connect our local and global efforts. How can we artfully weave together the threads of our lives and of our communities, to achieve our common goal of sustaining our planet?

Eco-literacy involves much more than knowing how to recycle!

Our environment is a whole complex network of systems, and sustaining it involves sharing information about many systems from many perspectives. We need creative people who know about molecules, about the health of living organisms, about humans in society, about economies and governance, about streets and buildings, about information and discovery.

Learning and sharing multiple perspectives enhances our ability not only to sustain the world, but to enjoy the wonder of it all. Let's get started!
