United StatesThe second annual Strolling of the Heifers Slow Living Summit is a world-changing (and life-changing) effort at cross-sector, sustainable transformation.
In scheduled as well as open space sessions organized into three major themes —Slow Economics, Slow Communities and Slow Policies — we’ll examine sustainable, resilient approaches to food, energy, money, health care, relationships – and the impact that catastrophic weather may have on all of them.
The Slow Living Summit is a unique, flexible gathering designed to foster cross-sector solutions for high-quality sustainable living — solutions for our planet in which common good is just as important as private gain.
Our plenary sessions take place in Brattleboro's historic art-deco theatre, the Latchis
In contrast to the typical convention-center conference, the Slow Living Summit’s sessions take place in various locations in downtown Brattleboro, Vermont with the town’s historic and funky Main Street serving as the concourse when moving between sessions. And the Summit happens just before the world-famous Strolling of the Heifers weekend — stay in town for the Stroll, an agriculturally-themed parade featuring scores of heifer calves, followed by the Live Green Expo, on Saturday June 2.
Our inaugural 2011 Summit attracted nearly 300 people from dozens of states. Click these links for information about the 2011 Slow Living Summit
