I was excited to learn that this conference is co-organised by our dear friend Tania Singer. It looks like a great opportunity to see some of the leading edge dialogue in this field. In particular I liked the subtitle “Everybody is invited to co-create the future.”
Are you concerned by the current economic situation and interested in alternative approaches? The Mind and Life Conference brings together the Dalai Lama with the leading minds in economics, neuroscience, psychology, anthropology, philosophy and contemplative science. Over five sessions they will explore how economic decisions are made as well as discuss new economic systems that reward fairness and co-operation while at the same time addressing the most urgent societal and environmental issues.
