2020 Rocky Mountain Natural Building Conference
The Natural Building Alliance presents the 2020 Rocky Mountain Natural Building Conference. This will be our first conference outside of Colorado. Come join us in Beautiful Moab, Utah, the home of Community Rebuilds and endless recreation opportunities. The event will be held at the Moab Arts and Recreation Center Thursday, March 26th through Sunday 29th.
The theme of the conference is “All Hands In”. This theme recognizes and celebrates the fact that everything that all of us are doing is important and awesome, and that we can work together to make it even more awesome.
Our Keynote Speaker for the event with be Chris Magwood of the Endeavour Centre, from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. He will be exploring if Natural Builders are Climate Heroes.
The conference program will include podium presentations, breakout sessions, and round-tables, and will also feature a generous variety of outdoor, hands-on workshops, and jovial after-hours gatherings. And don’t forget… it’s Moab! We encourage everyone to arrive early or stay late and enjoy this amazing corner of Planet Earth.
