The BLI Peace Leadership Retreat in Detroit
2023 Theme—Sustainability and the Environment
"Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations."

During this retreat, we will hear from community leaders who have made Detroit their home, learn how they contribute to their communities, and their work to create a more sustainable Detroit. The retreat will feature leadership learning visits to iconic Detroit institutions, Belle Isle, and Eastern Market, plus engaging speakers and activities to reflect on the experiences!
