C2C Retreat: Carmel Valley October 13-14, 2012

On a beautiful weekend in Carmel Valley, California, we came together to reflect on and discuss Change to Climate (C2C). With the inspiration of invoking the pause, the schedule of the weekend was a sound interplay of reflections, meditations, coffee, project visioning, nature walks and collective thinking.

The people involved were Bodhi Garrett, Erik Rogers, Lena Bumiller, Lilia Villa and Meghan Thomas. Together they formed a group of fellow visionaries with different backgrounds and skills, ready to face the challenges of our time.

The mission emerged out of the inspiration to combine practical local tools with a trans-regional resilience network and an inclusive movement inviting to adapt together in the changing world. The mission statement reads as follows:

C2C catalyzes climate change adaptation in unique bio-regions through access to proven community-based solutions.
