What can we learn from trees to regenerate Akron?

GAINS is a local gathering of sustainability practitioners who focus on advancing innovative ideas, and sustainable values and practices in the marketplace and into our homes.

At the January 2017 GAINS (Greater Akron Innovation Network for Sustainability) meeting, the topic will explore how we might reframe our understanding of change and transition, as well as integrate lessons on resilience into our social networks, from the perspective of trees and forests.

The “Second Wednesday” GAINS meeting will be on January 11th and will be held in the back conference room at Mustard Seed Market & Cafe in Highland Square, 867 West Market St, in Akron.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the free program begins at 6:15 p.m.
The cafe and bar is open throughout the evening for food and drink purchases.

The evening’s program will include a short film showcase on the intelligence, network and companionship of trees and forests; a talk by local artist, Michael W. Marras, who will share his inspiration for The Akron Tree Project; and a table top discussion on how we might integrate the wisdom of nature’s champions into a collective vision of a more sustainable Greater Akron
