Participants will explore possibilities for actions that are individual, organizational and community based.

Go home with a concrete idea of what to do next.

There is a suggested donation of $5 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds, so PWYC. Donations will be used to continue raising awareness of the issues of peak oil.
