Theme: Crossing the Line

Budapest, Hungary
March 22nd, 2013

About this event

• We live in a world characterized by opportunities and connection, by an abundance of choices and stimuli, by great wealth and freedom… But we also live in a world defined and constrained by lines we don’t cross: the lines of the impossible, the lines of differences, the lines of fear and the lines of poverty, the lines of mistrust and intolerance, the lines of ignorance, doubt and indifference… Lines that seemingly and rarely protect, but more often imprison us.

This time it is about crossing the line where there should be no lines… It is about facing real and profoundly important issues in a meaningful way with an open and solution focused mind… It is about learning from mistakes… It is about opening our eyes and seeing our world in new ways… But it is also about creativity and new ideas… New ways of combining what we already have, about finding new harmony and new ways of solving old problems… It is about breaking our well accustomed, comfortable, but ultimately toxic old patterns that don’t work for us any more, and finding new ones that actually do… It is about genuinely accepting and facing our challenges and about finding better ways forward…
