Roots of Community: Pathways Toward Cultural Repair
A Talk by Jon Young

Location: Wenjack Theatre at Trent University
Time: 7pm

Join Jon Young, globally recognized leader in the movement of nature connection and community development, for an inspiring talk at Trent University! As a naturalist, mentor, author and storyteller, Jon has dedicated his life and work to re-connecting people to nature, to themselves, and to their highest potential. Jon has studied and worked intensively with traditional communities worldwide that maintain vibrant systems of mentoring their people into strong relationships with nature. Jon's work is founded on the belief that what we connect to, we care about. And if we are connected to nature and to other people in meaningful ways, we can re-build healthy, vibrant communities that exist on the planet in a peaceful and regenerative manner. In this spirit, Jon shares 'best practices' for re-connecting people and communities to nature through his inspiring stories and powerful teaching style.

Jon is the founder of Wilderness Awareness School and co-founder of the 8 Shields Institute. He is the author or co-author of What the Robin Knows, Coyote's Guide to Connecting with Nature (with Forward by Richard Louv) and the Kamana Naturalist Training Program. Jon has facilitated programs and immersion experiences on nature connection and community development worldwide.

This talk is sponsored by the Impact Leadership Program, the Trent Central Student Association, and the Colleges of Trent University.
