Ma'ikwe Ludwig, the executive director of Dancing Rabbit Inc, the nonprofit arm of Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, is bringing her knowledge about community start-ups to Florida!

Cooperation is a key element of sustainability, and a sense of community is critical for our well-being as humans. Many people feel drawn to a particular version of community: the residential intentional community. This talk will lay out the most important considerations for making a new community a success.

Topics will include:
- creating a good vision statement
- the relationship between decision-making, conflict resolution, and membership process
- social dynamics you need to know about
- economic choices and their implication for sustainability and group cohesion
- what you should-- and shouldn't-- freak out about
- key questions for making your community a sustainable one
- balancing holding the vision with attracting new members
