Organized around the four topic areas of Environment, Economy, Democracy and Being, this dialog will encourage the creation of stories that can engender a more compassionate, inclusive, civil society, one that can support a sustainable future. Friday morning activities will include a discussion of emerging narratives assisted by visual facilitator Julie Stuart. Audience contributions will be welcome as the group identifies opportunities for change and begins to frame a call to action.
