The first Slow Living Summit
Downtown Brattleboro, VT June 1-3

A gathering of diverse movements toward local and regional sustainability from New England and beyond, the Slow Living Summit will be an intensive two-and-a-half day exploration of ways to build healthy, thriving local economies while encouraging, mentoring and supporting a new generation of activists, entrepreneurs and engaged citizens.

Strolling of the Heifers, best known for its annual agriculturally-themed parade and festival, is organizing the Summit in partnership with the Marlboro College Graduate School and World Learning as part of the tenth annual Strolling of the Heifers celebration.

We invite attendees representing the many organizations, businesses, educational institutions, funders and public entities who are working to make a resilient future an emergent reality in New England.
