Global Forum: From Ego- to Eco-System Economies: Creating Well-Being for All

In collaboration with CoLab and the Presencing Institute, MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning will co-host an event called the 2014 Global Forum on February 11-12th, 2014 on MIT’s campus.

The event aims to convene innovators who seek to shift the economic discourse, from GDP to a focus on well-being, 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, and from exploitation to shared ecosystem prosperity.

The Global Forum will showcase living examples and initiatives that generate profound change in social systems by shifting the awareness of people within these systems, from what the Presencing Institute calls ego-system awareness to eco-system awareness. The Forum will offer an experiential space to exchange ideas and explore the transformation of society and economy towards greater inclusivity, sustainability and awareness.

The Global Forum will be streamed. If you would like to watch go to:
