The summit organizing committee has been hard at work creating a vibrant program, which includes plenary panels under each sub-theme topic and a variety of hands-on workshops. At this stage we would like to open the call for workshops. We have 30 and 60 minute workshop blocks available, so if you feel you could present something to fit under one, two or all of these topics please email Wayne McKay at

We would prefer hands-on workshops and workshops that use the outdoors versus indoor spaces, but are open to any/all suggestions. Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort affords us a wide variety of possible locations on site.
