Practical Wisdom for a Better World
Organizers of the Opening Plenary Session are looking for photographs and words that will reflect diverse experiences, perspectives and communities of practice. It's fine to give us just a photo or just words, or both. We welcome all contributions.
We plan to look across all contributions to see what themes or ideas emerge; and we will integrate as many photos, words and themes into the Plenary Session as we can (e.g. slide show, collage, word cloud, poem, workshop activity). Your photos and words will help spark conversations, ideas and inspirations. Qualities such as deep sense of meaning, insight and authenticity are more important than a pretty picture or witty turn of phrase.
