THE NEW WORLD F.E.S.T. A CELEBRATION OF ECO-FRIENDLINESS, INNOVATION, AND FORWARD-THINKING SCIENCE.
Come join us for a weekend of fun and let’s celebrate our “new world” and learn how we can protect it by working together toward a “smart future”. This is an event for people who care, and for people who want to care more and maybe even do a little more to help. It’s partly about community and partly about learning, and a lot about having ourselves a good time … together. Rarely has the process of learning been this much fun, and we think that’s a good thing.
We’d like to think that this is an event for just about everybody.
