Dates, Times, Format
Sundays 7-8:30 p.m.
Six sessions weekly starting September 26, 2021

This is an EcoChallenge discussion course featuring highly flexible, participative discussions about the readings each week. The ideal group size is 8-12 people, but we can run the course with as few as 6 and as many as 15 participants. The facilitator can but does not have to rotate among group members each week. The first meeting of this course will be online, but later meetings could be held in-person depending on group preference.
