Antigonish Conference to Rethink Development Strategies
Why do we need to rethink development and build local pathways to global wellbeing?
Richard Reoch, President of Shambhala and former media chief of Amnesty International has said "We've all seen that what we call development in the world: poor getting poorer, the planet being destroyed and the human spirit being stilted. That's why we need to rethink."
Rethinking Development: Local Pathways to Global Wellbeing will show Atlantic Canadians how to integrate sustainable and equitable economic development with environmental and cultural preservation and good governance.
This is your opportunity to join with more than 400 economists, environmentalists, educators, philosophers, farmers, religious and social leaders, government officials, community activists and musicians from six continents and more than 30 countries to share experiences and models that can lead to healthier, happier, economically and environmentally sound communities.
Conference registrations are being accepted on a first-come first-served basis.
