Room ONE Plenary: The Many Dimensions of Human Security: Jonathan Granoff & Deepak Chopra
Sunday, September 18 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT
Humanity is making itself an endangered species. Change is needed. Human security is the direct, accurate and needed framework to generate that change. Join this live discussion with Deepak Chopra and Jonathan Granoff from Global Security Institute.
Endeavors focused on human security can improve how nations treat each other, how enterprises treat the natural world, and how we pursue happiness. An overemphasis on the threat and use of force to achieve global stability and peace is hazardous in the nuclear age. Using science and technology without regard to the climate, other species, and the regenerative processes of nature is unsustainable. We can better address these challenges by improving our spiritual and psychological well being. This dialogue on the many dimensions of human security will be a lively exploration of these issues by two friends with vastly different approaches and backgrounds.
