Request for Learnshop & Tour Proposals

Great Lakes Bioneers Detroit 10th Anniversary Conference

October 24-26, 2014 || Marygrove College, Detroit

PROPOSALS DUE BY Monday, May 12, 2014

We are mindful that an important purpose of the conference is to create a synergistic space for people to come together to celebrate the good work in the community that offers creative ideas and practical solutions for healing Earth and human community. The conference provides a time to slow down, recognize our strengths, assess our needs, and build the trust necessary to contribute to bringing forth a sustainable global society.

It is in this spirit that the Local Program Committee seeks Learnshop and Tour proposals for the 2014 conference. Our presenters are not paid, however we do offer complimentary registration and lunch. For those beyond a commuting distance, we will provide housing and travel reimbursements as needed.

Friday is Tour & Youth Day at the conference. We plan to offer six tours for adults and youth. In addition, we hope to have six learnshops for youth (hopefully, several led by youth). Learnshops need to engage youth grades 7 - 12 and both contribute to and tap into their desire to join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace.
