We are excited to be working with the New England Environmental Education Alliance and the Maine Environmental Education Association to facilitate a Better Together Innovation Lab. This interactive day will be held at Pineland Farms, in New Gloucester, Maine, a 5,000-acre working farm and business and learning campus.
Creating healthy, resilient, sustainable communities requires all of us, at any age, to learn: new behaviors, new skills, new ways of thinking and solving problems, new ways to work and live, new insights into how human communities can thrive while restoring nature.
The Innovation Lab will explore:
How can we accelerate this learning by connecting work across sectors, such as environmental non-profits, K-12 schools and higher education, energy, community agriculture, outdoor recreation, workforce development, cultural institutions, for-profit businesses, social enterprises, and municipalities?
Working off of fire-starter stories from featured speakers, we will engage with one another in a variety of activities and formats. New ideas and connections will flow from our dialogue, illuminating how we can collaborate to make greater progress on our common goals. This will be a highly interactive day, demanding full- participation and contributions from everyone present.
