This year, we are exploring relationships of human society to the planetary environment and to the larger dimension of time and space. Nature, Earth, and Humanity: Evolution of Connection is our theme.
We hope to contribute to answering important questions, such as:
How do our perceptions and perspectives intersect with the reality of how our decisions impact our planetary home?
How can we foster a culture of consciousness that respects all living beings and natural resources, and, possibly, is restorative?
The Forum also provides immersive experiences, live music, and, most importantly, time for connection and meaningful dialogue with each other.
NOTE: On Thursday, following the afternoon panel discussion, we will be hosting a reception for all attendees that will include opportunities for conversations with presenters at Promega’s new Kornberg Center for Research & Development.
