Our second annual Impact Symposium will be held on Saturday, November 4, 10 AM – 2 PM. The event is free and open to the public, and all ages are encouraged to attend!

10 AM Keynote: Greg Norris & Jim Merkel

Greg Norris, subject of Time article “10 Ideas That Are Changing Your Life: Handprints, Not Footprints” and Jim Merkel, author of Radical Simplicity: Small Footprints on a Finite Earth will lead us in a positive, passionate examination of our impact on the world.

11 AM Seacoast Handprint Pitches

There are so many organizations doing good work on the Seacoast. How do you choose where to get involved? In this series of rapid-fire presentations, each group will tell you (1) who they are, (2) how they make an impact, and (3) actions you can take to help. Each group will be available to answer questions during lunch.

Featuring Seacoast Local, Cross Roads House, ACLU of New Hampshire, PHS Eco Club, Commute SMART seacoast, and more!
