The theme for the conference is "SUSTAINABLITY THROUGH COMMUNITY." The
University of Colorado in Boulder, June 18-20, 2010, will be the ideal
place and time to connect these two movements. Please consider joining
us in this groundbreaking conference on sustainability and community.
It's sure to provide you with the tools and inspiration to do your
part on this most positive of journeys.

Highlights include:

Cohousing University -- In-depth, two-day intensive workshops on June
16 and June 17 will provide tools and information you can use as you
build and grow your neighborhood. For the first time, researchers and
writers will participate in a special workshop. Other courses are:
Developing Cohousing: Soup to Nuts and a Few Lessons Learned; Growing
Community: Head, Heart, and Hands; Senior Cohousing; and
Sustainability: Environmental + Economic + Cultural.

Featured Speakers -- Bill McKibben (June 18), Dave Wann (June 18),
Charles Durrett (June 20), and Kathryn McCamant (June 20) will
energize us and help us think about the connections between
sustainability and community.

Community Tours -- Full-day tours on June 16 and June 17 and half-day
tours on June 18 will take you to 11 Colorado cohousing communities so
that you can experience and learn about cohousing firsthand. These
rolling educational workshops are inspiring and informative!

Conference Sessions -- Running from June 18 through June 20, nearly 60
presentations will focus on ways to create and sustain neighborhood

Fundraising Banquet -- Featuring a live auction, the Saturday night
event brings everyone together to eat, network, play -- and raise
money for the cohousing movement.

Entertainment -- After the auction, enjoy live music provided by RUE.
RUE infuses the Gypsy Swing of Django Reinhardt and his Hot Club de
France with Latin and Jazz standards, creating a classic atmosphere of
hot jazz from the 1930s and '40s. Founded by Don Yaffe and Brian Schey
in 2004, RUE invokes both the intimacy of a small jazz club and all of
the percussive drive and swing of a big band dance hall. As the
Boulder Daily Camera says, "RUE's Gypsy jazz transports listeners to a
different era." Bring your dancing shoes -- or just hang out and

Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides -- This tour company is offering
tours before and after the conference. Guided hikes, guided biking
tours, a sightseeing excursion to Rocky Mountain National Park, and a
Boulder Brewery tasting tour are among the many possibilities. Visit
their website for more information.

We hope to see you in Boulder (June 16-20):
