Topics discussed will include:
Political Divide & Power to Unite
In recent years we’ve seen a rise of nationalism and a movement towards the ‘right’ in our world political stage. In a world of cyberwars, fake news, and political factions, how can we trust people in power to do good? Globalism has made the world more connected, yet why do we feel disconnected? How can our political leaders use their power to unite, rather than divide?
Economic Divide & Power to Uplift
With low wage growth, a slowing job market, corporate mistrust, wealth concentration and the rising cost of living, the economy can be seen to benefit the few, rather than the collective. In a new age of corporate responsibility, how do we create an economy where shared prosperity is central to the ‘well – fair’ of our communities?
Social Divide & Power to Connect
Our socio-economic status, age, race, gender, religion, sexual preference, and postcodes are just some of the aspects that unite or divide us. Inequality is entrenched across our neighbourhoods where the rich and the poor live side by side, but rarely meet. In a world of individualism, how can we look past our differences to find true connection with others and create better and fairer communities?
