Today, the world is threatened like never before. Between the threat of nuclear war, climate change, over-population, and the increasing lack of resources, humanity is faced with a unique dilemma. This conference suggests that such problems are, to a large extent, the result of a flawed worldview. We have neglected our relationships with each other, the earth, and the rest of nature. More and more people are recognizing the need for change at a deep level. This conference aims to provide an alternative: an alternative way of thinking as well as an alternative way of living. Our three featured presenters are recognized worldwide as leading figures on the cutting edge of promoting such alternatives.
