Students will have the opportunity to attend 4 or 5 breakout sessions.  Each breakout session will involve a group of 10-20 students discussing and developing a vision about a particular theme – describing what they value and what they want to see as part of a prosperous, healthy, and sustainable* community for the future.

For each given theme or breakout session, students will address such questions as:

- What do we value?
- What do we see as important characteristics of a sustainable community?

The ideas produced during all the breakout sessions will be voted on by all students attending the conference.  Final selections and the VISION created by GreenTown 912 students will then be presented to the attendees at the GreenTown Toledo-Lucas County Conference on Friday, 26 October 2012.
