After Sept 19, we will offer only a late registration package of $500, which

Gaviotas is an oasis of peace amidst the violence in Colombia. Engineers,
artists, peasants and former street kids have come together in a barren
savannah and accomplished the extraordinary. They have:

-achieved energy self-sufficiency
-established sustainable industries such as a zero-emission resin-making
-created a hospital and medicinal plant research center
-reforested 36,000 acres and reintroduced biodiversity
-governed themselves with remarkable equanimity.

How has this community fostered creativity, tolerance and self-reliance?
And how can we do the same?
