less than one month to join global audience and #rethinkmaterialism

Recent news of the record donations towards the Notre Dame rebuilding have re-opened the conversation about how materialism should serve the community. Clearly ebbf’s RethinkMaterialism annual conference addresses a very timely theme;
we aim to avoid superficial conclusions and instead go deep into exploring the underlying assumptions that are sustaining old materialistic approaches.


Invite your colleagues and friends to explore with people who have registered literally from all over the world, to rethink meaningfully and then find applications in our workplaces of a new, better, way to balance material and spiritual to build the future of business and of society.
