Additional Information

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.

This discussion is part of a broader initiative that will bring nearly 50 visionary leaders representing diverse ideologies and disciplines together at Syracuse University to engage in a dialog, telling the stories of our civilization and searching for a shared narrative to promote sustainability and move us beyond conflict. Through a process used widely in community and peace-building work, participants will share openly and listen deeply, transcending individual positions to develop a new narrative for the future of humanity and the planet. This dialog will be organized around four topic areas: Environment, Economy, Democracy, and Being. Artists will join participants to create stories that can engender a more compassionate, inclusive, civil society—one that can support a sustainable future.
