Where We Go From Here Conference
Building the Collaborative Commons
October 24-26, 2014
Tiered Pricing Options*—Friend: $420 Tier 1: $345 Tier 2: $270 Tier 3: $195
As a global community, we currently face many challenges. We collectively depend on shared resources including clean water, energy, a just economy, access to food and the Internet. However, these assets are threatened by economic, political, and social systems that do not support what’s best for the vast majority of people or the natural world.
As we consider how to bring forth the changes that will help us move toward a world of greater social equity and environmental resilience, it is important to understand the interconnectedness of all the issues at hand.
During this gathering, led by activists and thinkers on the front lines of change, we explore “The Commons” as a unifying paradigm to move us forward.
Whether you are a concerned citizen, business leader, educator, student, architect, builder, or politician, this gathering will inform and motivate you to take action in your own community.
Check in for this conference starts on Thursday October 23 at 4:00 p.m. (rooms available after 5:00 p.m.); the conference program begins on Friday October 24 at 9:00 a.m. and ends Sunday October 26 at 1:00 p.m. Please check back for additional workshop hours. Scholarships are available. (Please note: Scholarship award decisions will not be made until after September 15.) Teachers are subject to change.
* Tiered Pricing
At Omega, we believe that the benefits of a holistic education should be available to everyone. We also recognize that what is affordable for some will not be for all. We are now offering Tiered Pricing on select programs to help meet the varying financial needs of our community. This program works on an honor system. Keep in mind that the highest price reflects the cost of the workshop and allows Omega to sustain itself, whereas the lower prices cover only a portion of those costs.
Tier 1 Friends: $420 This level reflects the price of your workshop plus a tax-deductible donation of $75 to support Omega and our mission. Choosing this price includes membership in Friends of Omega and membership privileges throughout the year.
Tier 1: $345 This is the true cost of your workshop. Choosing this price helps Omega continue to retain world-class teachers and sustain classroom facilities.
Tier 2: $270 This is our partially subsidized price for those with temporary or minor financial need.
Tier 3: $195 This is our heavily subsidized price for those in need of deeper financial assistance.
*Tiered Pricing is subject to change and cannot be combined with other discounts.
