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

February 11-12, 2014.  In-person on MIT Campus, registration required.  Free live webcast at

In collaboration with Co-Lab and the Presencing Institute, DUSP will co-host an event called the 2014 Global Forum on February 11-12th, 2014 on 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:
