Creating My Community: Ecological Design and Collaborative Communication in Haiti

A Slide Presentation and Interactive Workshop
Event sponsored by Canada World Youth

Where: Perth, ON

Join us for a slide presentation of Bonita's volunteer work in Haiti, where she trained a team of teachers, community animators and agronomists in basic concepts from Permaculture (ecological design) and Nonviolent Communication. The presentation will be followed by an interactive workshop, which will include some of the exercises from the training in Haiti. The exercises will explore the concepts of multiple functions, multiple connections and smallest change, and how we may apply these to our lives and communities.
