Renewing Hope Event - March 19th, 2017
The Interfaith Earth Network marked its 10th anniversary with a free, dynamic open house titled "Renewing Hope" that drew more than 200 people to the Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee's Riverside Park on the city's east side. There were interactive displays by nearly 30 community organizations offering inspiration and practical ideas on water, food, education, energy, advocacy, consumption, waste, transportation, natural and human-made environments, and more. There also were engaging workshops; discussions; music; delicious sustainable refreshments; kids’ activities amid a family-friendly atmosphere; and a henna artist painting free environmentally-themed and traditional designs on hands and arms.
"Renewing Hope" was organized in partnership with the Urban Ecology Center with the generous support of the High Wind Association. Now a program of the Interfaith Conference, the Interfaith Earth Network returned to its roots for this event. It was founded as a collaboration of the Urban Ecology Center, the Interfaith Conference and the House of Peace.
