“If you want to go fast go alone. If you want to go far go together” – African proverb
Last week on Friday November 20th, 2015, Founder and Executive Director, Erzsi Institorisz got to re-visit our roots and speak to new Impact! Alumni at the 2015 IMPACT! Sustainability Champions Training in Vancouver, held at Groundswell Cafe.
GreenSeeds Music Society’s 10 minute presentation was centered on collaboration – the foundation upon on how we were built.
Our story involving a group of artists, teachers, and environmentalists unraveled. After months of administrative and prep work, we were becoming a music publisher and expanding into the community like wildflowers. We are almost ready to offer our first interactive music session: Seedlings, environmentally focussed workshops for children ages 2 to 5.
We’re all in this together
Alumni from a variety of educational backgrounds attended. Meaningful connections were made and telling topics were discussed — involving our world, our place in it and what can be done to protect our environment. The theme that wove through out was that Community is critical towards furthering social projects.
It was an inspiring experience to be around so many enthusiastic individuals.
Where would GreenSeeds Music Society be without Impact?
Buzz is great, but for an organization to launch itself, there needs to be a certain amount of human hours behind it. GreenSeeds Music Society was sparked into life in large part to the community created by The Cooperators Investment Group’s IMPACT! Sustainability Champions Training Program with training provided by the Natural Step Canada.
The importance of this support network and what it has meant to GreenSeeds Music Society cannot be articulated enough.
A call was made inviting fellow Impact! Alumni to collaborate not only with GreenSeeds but with other Impact! Alumni.
GreenSeeds Music Society is now taking in members. Whether you love jamming, want to build your resume, teach kids or just find a group of like0minded individuals. Consider becoming a GreenSeeds Music Ambassador today!
