About this event

This event will provide a platform for leading and creative minds in the fields of health, science, psychology and education to share their unique insights about health and habits. Our experts will cover a variety of areas including groundbreaking research on the factors motivating our lifestyle and habits, the foods we consume, and the consequential impact of our decisions on our health as well as the health of our institutions, our society and our planet.

The goal of this event is to educate and motivate attendees to think about their health and habits and their impact on us and our communities from an informed, balanced, and radically new perspective.
