MISSION

The mission of our annual Common Ground Summit is to create a gathering opportunity for a diverse, intergenerational community of change makers rooted in environmental and community stewardship. Our goal is to change the story about humans and the planet, shifting our relationship of dominance to one characterized by family and interconnectedness. Through intercultural collaboration and exchange, we seek to deepen our understanding of what it means to share “common ground:” this is our home and it is our collective responsibility to care for it.

The theme of our 2019 Common Ground Summit is Culture & Sustainability. Ultimately, we believe that sustainability is a cultural issue much more than it is a scientific one. Our goal is to facilitate an exploration of cultural beliefs and ideas that either promote or prevent a more peaceful and sustainable future. This year, we have students and elders visiting from the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Browning, Montana, and we hope everyone will openly exchange knowledge and strategies as we face the same problems all over the world.
