Engineering and Care for our Communities

This year, Caroline Baillie, Eric Feinblatt, and Sarah Brownell from RIT, will be hosting conversations around the theme, ‘Engineering and Care for our Communities’ – we invite you to bring your own questions, conversation topics, and activities. Just to get started …. How can engineering incorporate design principles with the aim of developing closed-loop, symbiotic, self-sustaining human habitats and productions systems that do not result in ecological degradation or social injustice?

Many of you have attended before and know what to expect, but for those who haven’t, here are some details.

June 19th: arrival for overnight retreat guests
June 20th: 9 AM breakfast followed by retreat workshop until 5PM. Lunch provided. Afterwards, there is open space for enjoying the forest, swimming, kayaking on the pond, and dinner
June 21st: 9 AM breakfast followed by retreat workshop until 5PM. Lunch provided. You are welcome to stay overnight and travel the following day if you need to.
