Roundtable: From What Green Springs Community?
Lighthouse (145 Borinquen Pl., Brooklyn)
$5 suggested donation, RSVP requested
Exploring sustainability as a thread that weaves together a community. The fabric of a Community could be tied to a concrete geography or fastened to a virtual heartland of shared values. The location of the roundtable in Williamsburg provides an intriguing starting point for a discussion of the meaning of “sustainability” and it’s power to define “community”.
