Brown Bag Lunch with NCAT's Energy Corps Interns

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, May 22, with a presentation by Madelynn Nelson and Melissa Englund from the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) about building community resilience and sustainability. A resilient Butte can adapt to changes without losing the essential qualities that define what Butte is and what it does. The presenters will focus on resilience being more than just hazard preparedness, and more of resilience as an uplifting and celebration of a community and its culture. At the end of the presentation Nelson and Englund will talk about NCAT's upcoming Sosten Fest, and how it will aim to build resilience and sustainability in Butte through bringing the community together and starting important conversations. “Sosten” is a Cornish word meaning “sustenance” or “food.” This festival will focus on local food with the Great Pasty Throwdown competition as the highlight of the day.
