Passing this along for those who are interested. Organizations involved in sustainability or social justice can be part of an affiliate program that rewards you for publicizing the event. The Pachamama Alliance, parent organization of The Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposiums, is also partnered with them and there is a worldwide symposium day on May 12, where symposiums will be presented worldwide.

============== 

Sustainable World Coalition is co-producing the largest sustainability education and engagement initiative ever — the Spring of Sustainability, beginning March 26, 2012. 

The Spring of Sustainability will bring the biggest names in sustainability to the world through daily short teleconference presentations, one-day teleconference summits, live events, and online courses. Look for updates and details here: http://www.swcoalition.org/programs/spring-of-sustainability 

This three-month series of events, which we're producing in partnership with the 180,000-member Shift Network, will be offered largely free worldwide. Our goal is to both raise awareness and empower large-scale shifts towards sustainability. Partnering with us in this massive effort are organizations like Bioneers, Green America, The Pachamama Alliance, Wiser Earth, New Reality - and many more.
