The idea of bringing groups of elders and youth together to participate
in collaborative conversations is not a new one. Communities have heard
the voices of all members for ages, but in recent years generations
have split and segregated themselves from each other. Community Earth Councils
are being created by the Utne Institute in the hopes of growing locally
based groups where conversations about topics important to all citizens
today can be had across generation gaps. The wisdom of elders can work
in conjuntion with the innovation of youth.

To launch the gatherings, the Utne Institute, AARP and the Center for Spirituality and Healing present the first Community Earth Council Symposium
on November 12, 2008 where the implementation of these project councils
will be discussed. Attendees can take advantage of meeting with others
from similar geographic locations who have similar passions toward
community action.
