Hollyhock Social Change Institute

Cortes Island, British Columbia
Hollyhock »

Close to 120 environmental and social change leaders from British Columbia, Ontario, Washington, California and Hawaii met to refine skills and make new connections.

With few formal opportunities to build relationships with one another, participants used the opportunity to develop new strategies and government relations plans on land conservation, the Kyoto Protocol, emissions reductions, reduction of toxins and development of renewable energies. A number received help from experienced consultants on fundraising, marketing and public relations.

Blackstone Ranch Institute was the lead sponsor. Hollyhock is Canada's leading educational retreat center.
