“New normal,” “uncertain times,” “unprecedented.” We’re living in an era unlike any we’ve experienced, and collective survival has never been more relevant to our day to day. As was planned for last summer, in 2021 we continue our focus on skill sharing, centering on the health of ourselves, our communities and our planet. As we embrace uncertainty, so is true with this year’s conference. If we’re able to convene, look for updates this spring about workshops, theme speaker, and other programming. No matter what, this year LOAS II continues to discuss what’s possible when we bring our collective focus to the same long-term vision. Together we address the challenges and opportunities in our complex world, and explore best practices to support ourselves, one another, and our communities in the long term.
