Due to the pandemic, we greatly regret having to
cancel the conference as it was planned.
We are currently trying to organize an online conference instead,
with the same theme and the same speakers.
We also plan to have a day of practice in preparation for the conference,
led by Saki Santorelli on Thursday the 22nd of October.
Hopefully we will succeed, and we hope you will reserve the time from:
Thursday the 22nd, 16.00, Norwegian time
to Saturday evening the 24th of October
We hope to announce the program in August.
Thank you all for your understanding.
What follows is the original program
Friday 23 - 25 October 2020
Humanity at theCrossroads?
Contemplative Practice & Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Modern Technologies
The conference will focus on topics essential for a humane and sustainable future
- The essence, needs and possibilities of the human being
- The essence and possibilities of technology
- The relationship between man and technology
A special concern will be the coming generations; which human qualities do children and adolescents need to thrive in tomorrows’ technological world? More information about the conference here.
