November 6-8, 2009: Weekend in Wise

Come to beautiful Wise County, Southwest Virginia November 6-8 for a weekend summit focusing on a sustainable future for Appalachia!

Together we will appreciate the rich culture and ecology of this area, learn about the resistance to mountaintop removal coal mining and how we can participate, and explore a sustainable future for the region. This event will provide informational workshops, including watershed health, stream monitoring, the permitting process of mountaintop removal, and sustainable economic development. It will also provide trainings including student organizing basics, campaign planning, facilitating a good meeting, starting an organization and retaining members, and working with the media. Weekend in Wise will be a chance for regional groups and organizers to meet, network, and learn from each other.
