About The Moment of Obligation Workshop
Those who tackle our biggest social and environmental problems often remember a Moment of Obligation - a moment, event, or period of time in their lives that compelled them to act and ignited their commitment to a certain issue. Participants in this workshop will engage in facilitated discussion, self-discovery activities, and small group conversations to help them identify their moments of obligation and explore the problems they are driven to address.
What you need to know:
  • POTLUCK: Bring a commercially-prepared snack to share! (Due to venue restrictions we cannot bring in home made food.)
  • We will be networking and snacking from 5:30 - 6:00 pm.
