Sonoma County is home to a plethora of organizations and businesses that support environmental sustainability, fair employment practices, fair trade, and the revitalization of The Commons. From the Sonoma County GoLocal Cooperative to the Green New Deal, Green Jobs, local city councils, local organic agriculture, and solar and geothermal energy, there is widespread support for new economic relationships. With the highest voter turnout in California for the 2008 election --- 93.4% --- Sonoma County is home to concerned and active citizens.

The town of Sonoma is uniquely suited to the type of conference that Praxis Peace Institute has become known for over the years. Many of our conference sessions and breaks take place outdoors. Cafe discussion groups, plenary breaks, and lunch can be enjoyed in outdoor restaurants and cafes on the main square. Because the town of Sonoma is designed like a European city with a central town square and park, the conference has a center without being confined to a hotel.

Daily plenary sessions will take place in the historic Sebastiani Theater on the square in downtown Sonoma. Local cafes will supply food and beverages during breaks and for discussion groups. The Evening sessions will be in the Sonoma Community Center or the Veterans Memorial Building. All conference venues, restaurants, shops, and several hotels and B&Bs are within easy walking distance of each other. This is a "walkable" conference with daily exercise and fresh air built into the schedule.

"The Economics of Peace" Conference is supporting local business and local non-profit organizations.
