On the weekend I had the pleasure of participating in the Good 100 Experiment with an amazing group of Edmonton do-gooders. It was an inspiring experience.
I had the opportunity to get to know agents of social change of all ages and from many diverse sectors who are working to make Edmonton a better place. The event was structured to create many opportunities to get to know new people and find out the projects and ideas that they are passionate about.
The lunches by Knosh Catering were fantastic, and there was a wide assortment of potluck snacks.
Late Sunday morning I sat in the sun to a discussion about meditation led by Antoine Palmer from Sustainival. As Antoine talked, a small flock of geese waddled beside us to graze and model meditation-in-motion.
I turned around and took a photo of this snacking gosling.
It was a great way to spend the weekend and I am sure that I will stay connected to some of the people I met, and I’ll probably see at Green Drinks events throughout the year. As Nadine Riopel, one of our hosts, pointed out – I couldn’t believe the amount of awesome that was there!
Maybe I’ll see you at the Good 100 Experiment next year. In the meantime you can sign up for the Local Good newsletter to find out about other fantastic events throughout the year.
