This year, the WIPN Environmental Committee is proud to present its second annual “Environmental Forum” on Friday 15 September 2017.
The Environmental Forum will focus on our theme of “Going Green” while exploring what it means to be human. We will have panel discussions on the following topics:
What does it mean to be human?
We are creative creatures that shape our world in new and innovative ways. Many individuals have developed unique methods to make this happen, but some go beyond normal expectations. This aligns with the theme of WIPN 2017, which is Human Consciousness.
Some ways in which individuals have introduced consciousness into their work include:
– The Organic Farmer
– The Cultural Anthropologist
– The Self Published Author
– The Print Artist (maker) – The Analog photographer – Do you have a story to share? Please email the Women In Print Network at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss opportunities to share your story.
