Why does it say "United States"? Why limit the scope?

A primary motivation for many of us involved in this project is promoting NVC in the US to help support major cultural and political shifts here, recognizing how the US's choices in many realms (political, economic and others) profoundly impacts much of the world.

How much does it cost?

The room and board are included in the conference price. The ensure accurate representation, the pricing is only listed on the registration page.

Can I get a cheaper price by staying at a friend's place nearby?

We'd like to find a way to meet your need for ease and inclusion in the community. With three days of conference time to connect and build, we'd like to understand your needs better to see if there is a way to address them in a way which also permits you to stay onsite with the group.
