The goal was to learn how to create a world that works for 100 percent of humanity and all life on earth, now and for future generations. Questions asked included: What is reality?

How can we strengthen our collective capacity to transform business into an agent of world benefit, one whose purpose is creating prosperity and flourishing for all life on earth!
