Disrupters: Food, Tech and Farming
February 10, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
There is an intersection of technologies that are driving our culture forward, moving beyond the paradigm of east meets west, and into a paradigm of shared humanity. Food and farming, technology and politics: these are some of the driving forces on our planet. They are used for both good and self-serving means. In these fragile times, how can we keep our eye on the ball, and make choices, and take direct actions, that will lead to the supporting collective good?
In this evening discussion, we will hear from thought and action leaders in the fields of food, farming, technology and mindfulness, to learn about how we can focus our attention and efforts towards directed and beneficial right action.
