The global financial crisis shows just how vulnerable our economic systems are to greed and the ramifications of human decisions. The Mind & Life XX conference focuses on exploring economic systems that reward not only individuals but our global societies.
Are you concerned by the current economic situation and interested in alternative approaches?
The Mind & Life XX conference brings together the Dalai Lama with the leading minds in economics, neuroscience, psychology, anthropology, philosophy and contemplative science.
Over five sessions they will explore how economic decisions are made as well as discuss new economic systems that reward fairness and co-operation while at the same time addressing the most urgent societal and environmental issues.
The conference will be held in English; no translations will be offered.
