Event Description

Coalitions of Mutual Endeavor presents a Paradigm Shifting Seminar, hosted by RE Sources, and co-sponsored by Sustainable Bellingham.

4 hours of rich, professional development for organizers and organizations:

* seeking a true alternative, not mere reform;
* eager to build coalitions among peace, justice, environmental, and democracy groups while bridging to the mainstream; and
* who are aware that without critical mass, there won’t be critical change.

What you will gain from the seminar:

* A systemic framework, process and supportive tools
* A common goal and a set of shared values that can be pressed into service—and why they work
* A process to overcome stumbling blocks in big-tent coalitions
* A comprehensive, cohesive narrative that starts with the root disease of single-issue symptoms—connecting the dots
* A legally defensible definition of sustainability and a process for developing sustainability indicators
* Reconnecting and Relocalizing—ways to build relationships of mutual support for community resiliency and quality of life
* A jurisprudence and policy foundation to enact and support change

True justice cannot exist without sustainability, and without justice there will be no peace.

Fee: Sliding scale, $20-$45 per person

Seminar presenters: Dave and Allison Ewoldt, formerly of Bellingham, now residing in Tucson, AZ, are practitioners and researchers in applied ecopsychology, and co-founders of Transition Pima. Their community and political activism revolves around remembering how to think and act the way that nature works.Visit their website at
