Saturday 12th October, 2013
7:00pm to 8:00pm
In this Keynote panel discussion, four of the main representatives from Social Science, Neuroscience, Contemplative Practice and Philosophy will review and discuss the preceding discussions. The main theme will be to find a synthesis between the personal and societal changes proposed throughout the earlier proceedings, as well as the question of values. Values form the basis of human interaction. Since both in education and in economy the congruency of values is crucial, one of the main challenges will be to identify parallels and connections between individual motivation and societal constraints, as well as to interpret these values in the larger context of a transformation both at the personal and the cultural level. The discussion will also explore how cultures and individuals shape one another, how systems architecture modifies behaviour by providing specific choice options and rewards.
