Theme: Beyond a culture of contest
June 9th, 2012
About this event
The global system has become a tightly knit web in which a change in any part of the web has significant impacts on the others: wealth, security and welfare of almost all nations are interrelated. While the interdependence and the crises that confront us grow, we are still bound by a system that does not foster cooperation and mutual understanding in order to find better solutions but keeps building walls inside and outside of our heads. Referring to our competitive culture, in which the production of losers and winners is a prerequisite of existence, we decided to invite speakers from all over the world that will suggest new or alternative ways of thinking and acting in a competitive environment, embracing the idea of a culture beyond contest.
