A new manner of thinking
The dramatic changes in world population, resource utilisation and energy consumption hold major implications for the environment. Virtually every aspect of Earth's ecosystem and resource base is currently affected, threatening the continued survival of the human race and all life as we know it. The environmental crisis and the crisis of deepening poverty for many of the World's people are indivisible and an enormous change of attitude is required if we are to survive.
Sustainable survival of the human race is dependent on new ways of thinking. Our speakers are all experts in innovative thought in their chosen fields. They are catalysts for our forum to develop new paradigms which can be translated into practical action and outcomes.
The aim of this conference is to show that within the context of our society there is a occurring a major change or shift in paradigm in the way we view reality. The new way of thinking shows that everything maintains itself at the expense of everything else and that at the deepest level we are all connected.
In this respect we all are part of a (karmic) chain of cause and effect and for a business to succeed we need to take into account what the business needs to do to create for itself positive karma or good causes.
We live in a world which is currently being mutilated through the irreversible loss of living and non living resources. The vast poverty and inequity in the developing world,the suffering caused by the exponential growth of wars and the vast exponential rise of the military industrial complex has a subtle negative affect on our ability as a species to survive
The aim of this conference is to highlight what we have become as a species and to look at what kind of scenarios we wish to create for ourselves in the future.
Do we wish to create a more cooperative and caring global society or will we persist in ignoring increasing inequity and poverty in a world which is already in crisis from environmental degradation.and climate change.
