Open Forum for Everyone

Language: Deutsch, English and any language you want to contribute in, we will work together on translating it.

We live in times where many of us experience increased conflict and escalation around current world issues, a more urgent need for transformation – and at the same time deep uncertainty about the right means for effecting change.

How do we respond to challenges we face as a species, climate change, war, our complicated relationships with other species , etc.? What outer action do we take as individuals and organisations, and what inner resources can we cultivate in order to be effective and create the change we want to see in the world?”

The evening will begin with short statements from representatives of different perspectives on these questions. The second part is an open forum style discussion where audience and experts are interacting with each other.

An open forum is a public space in which a community can get to know better the diversity of ideas and feelings among its members. In this space every point of view is important and welcome.
