Omega Institute's 'Where We Go From Here' Conference

As a global community we depend on shared resources including clean water, energy, a just economy, access to food and the Internet.

However, access to these necessities is threatened by economic, political and social systems that do not support what’s best for the vast majority of people, or the natural world.

At Omega Institute’s second annual Where We Go From Here conference, led by activists and thinkers on the front lines of change, we will explore the Commons model as a unifying paradigm to move us forward.

Whether you are a concerned citizen, business leader, educator, student, architect, builder or politician, this gathering will inform and motivate you to take action in your own community.

We hope you’ll join us, Oct. 24-26, alongside speakers Vandana Shiva, Van Jones, Jeremy Rifkin, Winona LaDuke, Bill McKibben, David Bollier and more.

The Biden-Harris transition team identified COVID-19, economic recovery, racial equity and climate change as its top priorities. Rivers are the through-line linking all of them. The fact is, healthy rivers can no longer be separated into the "nice-to-have" column of environmental progress. Rivers and streams provide more than 60 percent of our drinking water — and a clear path toward public health, a strong economy, a more just society and greater resilience to the impacts of the climate crisis.
