Satish Kumar & Jonathan Dawson

We live in extraordinary times. Rarely has so much rested on the choices, responses and contributions of one generation. How can we rise to the challenge of the moment, seeing opportunity in place of burden; call to vocation and service in place of fear and drudgery?

This week offers opportunities for meditation, reflection, pilgrimage and exploration of the role of work in today's world. We will spend time alone in nature, walking in the Scottish Highlands, studying emerging trends and opportunities in the social economy and learning from each other in our emerging explorations of meaningful work.
