“Waking Up” is about Spiritual Practice and personal direct experience; “Growing Up” is about all the aspects of building a world based on the vision and values that emerges from that depth of that direct experience of who we all are. Prominent in the discussions is the future of the world Sustainable Development Goals and the question of how to create “a world that works for everyone”.
