We just sent out a Cohousing Now! broadcast and there's been a nice response in registrations (lesson: deadlines work). Here's the text from the Cohousing Now! email: You need Cohousing information - the Cohousing Conference delivers! To learn more or register, see http://www.cohousing.org/conference May 28: Last day to order a table in the Exhibit Area. May 31: Last day to register with discounts ($40-$100) June 1: Last day to register for a campus dorm room. 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 communities. 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 enjoy. 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. To learn more or register, see www.cohousing.org/conference. We hope to see you in Boulder (June 16-20): http://www.cohousing.org/conference Craig
