Woodland Dunes Nature Center to Host “The Natural Step” Study Circle

I was very excited to receive this notice of a study circle at Woodland Dunes Nature Center (link). I remember when Professor James Wasley brought me a video tape showing Karl Henrik Robert describing his ideas for The Natural Step while completing my master’s thesis at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP).

At that time, it was still a relatively new concept, and seemed to make so much logical sense I was confident it would gain traction. Many of the ideas found within The Natural Step have influenced my career path, either directly or indirectly, and I’m inspired to learn of Manitowoc County’s potential interest in exploring how it can be employed in their community.

Can we achieve sustainability in Manitowoc County?

Wednesday mornings from 9am – 10:30am
Participants should attend all sessions:
February 6, 13, 20, 27 and March 5, 12, 19, 26 and April 2
Woodland Dunes
Nature Center

*Participants are expected to borrow or purchase a copy of the book, The Natural Step for Communities: How Cities and Towns Can Change to Sustainable Practices by Sarah James and Torbjorn Lahti, to use as the basis for discussion. Check your local Bookstores and Library. Some books immediately available by contacting Tina (info below). Also, if there is anyone for whom the cost of the book would prevent them from being able to participate in a circle, please let Tina know as she has several copies that were generously made available for that type of situation.

For more information, contact Tina at 686-6980 or tprigge (at) manitowoc (dot) org
