As of summer 2014 we have stopped publishing Monthly Announcements. For information about discussion guides and circles, plese go directly to the Northwest Earth Institute, nwei.org.
A large, vibrant community of people in Maryland, northern Virginia and Washington D.C. is on a journey to live more lightly.
In a discussion circle you will enjoy the unique experience of having deep conversations with 8-12 adults for a predetermined number of meetings.
Learn more about discussion guides you can use to jump start these deep conversations.
Our monthly forums in Bethesda, Towson, and Columbia focus on living more lightly.
Check out our monthly announcement, which lists local events of interest to our community as well as potential discussion circles in our region. Sign up for the monthly announcement by emailing Lore at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our lively online conversations will keep you connected when you don't have time to be in a circle or attend our forums.
We also offer a video lending library, which enables you to enjoy a different way to start deep conversations with others. Invite a group to watch a video at your home!
Finally, you can volunteer to help others embark on their journeys.
Let's ease our journeys, by whatever paths we have each chosen to take, by helping each other to live more simply for a sustainable future for Earth and all its inhabitants.
