Forum Intention

The 2014 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 we call ego-system awareness, to eco-system awareness.

We see this event as an important step toward convening a global movement that aims at shifting the economic discourse. The living examples showcased at the forum will offer insight into how we might shift from a focus merely on 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.
