2020 Summer Institute

The Past is Present
Flow of History Summer Institute, 2020

Due to Covid-19, the institute has been postponed. More information will be coming by early April.

June 22-25, 2020
Grafton, VT

How do communities help people in need?
How does human activity affect the natural and built environment?
What are ways people stand up for what they believe in?
Who has immigrated to our communities? How welcoming have we been?

During the four days we will work with these questions and along the way explore how nearby history can shed light on contemporary issues. Topics to explore include:

Welfare and Poverty
Climate Change
Social Activism

During the week we will practice discussion protocols and activities that support development of transferrable skills, including clear and effective communication, informed and integrative thinking, and responsible and involved citizenship.
