Building the New World 2020: From Personal to Global Transformation

Many people believe it is no longer feasible to reform our institutions, due to political corruption, corporate greed, and cultural decay.

Rather than waste time attempting to rehabilitate our broken institutions, this conference will focus on a complete transformation of interconnected systems - in every Sector of Society.

We believe that in order to Build the New World, humanity must quickly shift from:

  • Imperialism to Social Democracy
  • Materialism to Altruism
  • Debt-based Money to Universal Basic Income
  • A global War System to a worldwide Culture of Peace
  • Unsustainable Environmental Destruction to Resilient Organic Networks, and
  • Religious Separation to the redeeming state of Spiritual Unity.

In sum, we must collectively move from fragmentation to holism … and fast!

BTNW 2020 sessions will be led by Futurists and Social Architects in every Sector of Society - a systems theory model inspired by visionary Barbara Marx Hubbard. Attendees from around the world will network and be empowered to manifest the New World we seek – a world that works for EVERYONE. Join people of good conscience and positive ACTION to learn how YOU can help bring about the needed Paradigm Shift.
