Co-producers, Janell Kapoor and Stacey Murphy, say that their goal is “to inspire all of us in creating regenerative communities and a more resilient world.” Through the generosity of the presenters, their organizations and partners, summit participants will have access to the Whole Earth Toolkit<http://wholeearthsummit.org/toolkit/> – an extensive collection of online programs, videos, e-books, discounts and skill-building tools designed for people to strengthen their practice of creating the world they want for themselves, future generations, and for life on earth. The instigators of the Whole Earth Summit<http://www.wholeearthsummit.org/> bring 34 collective years of hands-on social and environmental activism to this work. Janell Kapoor, Founder of Kleiwerks International<http://www.kleiwerks.org/>, has led on-the-ground natural building trainings for people from over 52 countries. Stacey Murphy, founder of BK Farmyards<http://www.bkfarmyards.com/>, inoculated renegade farming tactics throughout the backyards of Brooklyn, NY. The two have teamed up to launch this first-ever online global summit through the Ashevillage Institute<http://ashevillage.org/>, a 501c3 nonprofit organization they co-direct. “It’s another way we can give back to benefit people and our earth, only at a larger scale,” they say. Ashevillage Institute, based out of Asheville, NC, brings together individuals in community for hands-on, skilling-up, educational programs that activate on-the-ground, nature-based projects with the aim of fostering a vibrant, just and resilient world.
