2nd Sustainability Conference 17-18 July in Mundekulla, near Emmaboda, Sweden.
This year’s theme: “Man and Nature”
“Think seven generations forward in every important decision”
Native American proverb
Scientists, business leaders, politicians and ordinary people are increasingly beginning to question our lifestyle.
How has it become the way it is and what can we do about it? How can we create a sustainable future?
These questions are vitally important and affect us all. The change begins with each of us and together we can make a difference if we take these issues seriously ….
The conference takes place in conjunction with the annual Circle Way Camp
Inspiring lectures, meetings and talks!
Welcome to experiential events where you get inspiration to take steps towards your vision of how to live, work and live. Over the weekend, involved representatives from different parts of the world will give their perspective on the human attitude towards nature. After each lecture small groups will gather where everyone can express their own thoughts and attitudes. The weekend concludes with an “Open Space Forum” in which all participants are invited to share their thoughts. On Saturday night, we offer film shows, slide shows, dance, movement and mingling. Lectures are held in simple English and translated on request.
