Who we can be, and what we can do at this point in history has never been so significant and exciting.

Designed with the collaboration of some of the finest scientific, indigenous and activist minds in the world, the Symposium explores the current state of our planet from a new perspective, and connects participants with a powerful global movement to reclaim our future.
Over 50 Symposium have been held since it was first held in New Zealand in June of last year. This Symposium is part of a global initiative to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilled, and socially just human presence on this planet.
