Telling a New Energy Story

June 23-24, 2017 • Hotchkiss, Colorado

On June 23, 2017, a small group of women will gather on the western slope of Colorado to enjoy rich conversation, meals, camping, and creative activities to deeply consider the energy future we want for our lives and our world. Does it include coal? Natural gas? Solar power? Wind power?


This is a gathering for women who are interested in our energy future. We are looking for fun, curious, thought leaders to participate.
