EarthConnect Conferences are virtual conventions exclusive to environmental nonprofits, where nonprofits listen and nonprofits lead! One or several representatives from each group will attend for a day full of networking and knowledge-gaining discussions. At EarthConnect, we work together to build relationships and solve common problems that we all face. By listening, discussing and brainstorming together, we each return with fresh ideas that are sure to ignite new solutions!
How it Works
Conferences are held 10 times a year, each one consisting of one particular topic. Featured Nonprofit group representatives will give presentations showcasing how they overcame a particular problem within their group and what they learned from the experience. Then, we split up into breakout sessions 3 times, each with a different variety of people to answer the same questions about the conference topic so as to gain as many ideas for solutions to the problem as possible!
It is certain that you will walk away from EarthConnect with brand new ideas on how to tackle even the worst scenario that is bogging your group down!
