Join us for a series of participant-driven World Cafe conversations about how we can collaborate to shape the future by synergizing the unique gifts of all generations. The Cafe provides a hospitable space for integration and reflection on what is emerging at the conference, and building partnerships of personal and professional value. Let’s create tomorrow, together!

Democracy, Free Speech and Media | World Cafe
The media is under attack, with assaults on journalists and net neutrality, gaslighting, alternative facts, fake news, surveillance, monopolization, and corruption to name a few. Inspired by today’s sessions on democracy and journalism, this highly interactive session provides an intergenerational space for conversation and action planning. What time is it, and what is called for? How specifically might we take collective and wise action to protect and advance our constitutional rights to free speech and free information?
