Be present – Feel what you see – Become a global witness
Global Social Witnessing is the emergent human capacity to mindfully attend to global events with an embodied awareness, thereby creating an inner world space mirroring these events.
In the 21st century schools and universities have a major responsibility for creating spaces in which a cosmopolitan society can be prepared for the future, where students can practice ‘global social witnessing’ (GSW) in order to develop human capacity to attend mindfully to global events with embodied awareness. If our future is to be cosmopolitan, we need to establish cosmopolitan education.
The GSW–Lab 2020 will provide a space where diverse perspectives/experiences from artists, scientists, spiritual practitioners, and political activists will inspire participants to better understand and embody GSW within their mind, heart, and body. Throughout the lab, we will co-create new ideas, strategies, tools, and energy to help us become mature global citizens in our times of disruption and transformation.
All change-makers (educators, activists, artists, scientists, students, therapists etc.) are welcome!
