The Global Presencing Forum

You are here

11 February, 2014 to 12 February, 2014

We invite you to participate in a virtual experience of the The Global Presencing Forum, broadcast live from Cambridge, MA. Plenary sessions of the Forum will be streamed live, free of charge, and there are a variety of ways to participate online. Click here for more detailed information.

The 2014 Global Presencing Forum, "From Ego- to Eco-System Economies: Creating Well-Being for All" is offered by the Presencing Institute in collaboration with key partners*. It will showcase living examples that generate profound change by shifting awareness of economic discourse: from a focus merely on GDP to a focus on well-being (e.g., GNH or GPI), from scarcity to abundance, from exclusion to inclusion, from competition to co-creation, from reducing negative to generating positive impact, from transactional to transformative relationships, from exploitation to shared ecosystem prosperity.
