Get inspired to make change! In October 2013, Omega hosted a number of leaders and visionaries in the field of sustainability for the annual OCSL conference, Where We Go From Here.
With a unique whole-systems perspective that recognizes the interdependence of all things, the conference explored opportunities for an interdependent world and offered creative solutions to the complex global challenges facing us today.
The confernce is now available on demand, so you can benefit from the wisdom (and wit!) in keyote talks from Jeremy Rifkin, Majora Carter, David W. Orr, Janine Benyus, Paul Hawken, Rob Hopkins, Michael E. Reynolds, and Bob Berkebile, as well as a panel discussion, conversations between pairs of speakers, and spoken word poetry.
