Dear Flourishing Friends,
As we welcome a beautiful new season, we are excited to update you about how we're continuing to develop relationships with local youth-related organizations and amazing social entrepreneurs serving our community.
After a successful screening with the Ojai Film Festival in support of Mesa, we are collaborating again to highlight the projects of the Green Valley Project, a local environmental restoration project led by youth and several organizations in the Valley. On Wednesday, October 5, at 7-9 pm, the Ojai Film Festival will screen two amazing documentary films free-of-charge:
Where There Once Was Water and Shepherd's Song.
Please RSVP to let us know that you'd like to enjoy this double-feature HERE.
A week later, on Wednesday, October 12, at 3-5:30 pm, we are partnering with We Are Open Circle and the Green Economy Think Tank to host a local Listening Circle. During the Listening Circle we will explore the conditions that make collaboration possible through sharing and listening to stories about what is and what is not working here in our community. All ages are welcome. You can learn more and register for this free event HERE.
We are also preparing for a 3-day Hackathon on December 9-11 with the to develop web and mobile apps for the Green Valley Project. These apps will educate us about ways we can progress environmental restoration projects and measure progress. Participants aged 16-26 with programming experience are highly encouraged to apply.
It's a pleasure and an honor to partner with local organizations and social entrepreneurs in support of our community and the next generation of leaders. Please join us!
Diana and the Flourish Ojai Team
