Theme: Seize the Silence

This event occurred on

Suffern, New York
United States

Our world is too complex for every thing to be part of the mainstream public discussion. Every development has countless facets, too multitudinous for all of society to recognize them. Analyzing these topics that are too often in the “silence” can broaden perspectives, encouraging us to cultivate a focus not just on the most prominent ideas, but also one on their nuances and ideas spoken of less.
