Hands-on workshops will offer opportunities to learn how to find a green job, make your home and office energy efficient, grow your own organic food, and more – all opportunities to become a part of emerging “New Green Economy” solutions that are also energy independence and climate change solutions. Think Tank discussions – planned and spontaneous – will offer rare opportunities to huddle with top experts, youth energy independence activists, and ROTHBURY fans alike to plot solutions. In 2009, we won’t only THINK. We will dig deeper into last year’s themes and we will DO. Join with us in spreading the Think Tank vibe throughout ROTHBURY’s forests and meadows! Stay tuned for news of green contests, fashion shows, clean energy and vehicle exhibits, and very special Think Tank Performances by top ROTHBURY artists…  (Jun 19, 2009 | post #1)
