Wisdom 2.0 addresses the great challenge of our age: to not only live connected to one another through technology, but to do so in ways that are beneficial to our own well-being, effective in our work, and useful to the world.
Through our series of conferences, meet-ups, and workshops, Wisdom 2.0 strives to bring this conversation to the world in an accessible, innovative, and inclusive way.
We have three main conference events coming up:
1) Our annual Wisdom 2.0 Conference, held in February each year in the Bay area. This is our flagship event, bringing together over 2,000 people from 20 countries. Our 2015 event will be February 26 - March 1, 2015, at the Marriott Marquis.
2) Wisdom 2.0 Business is coming back to New York City for the second time, on October 14 & 15, 2014. This is a two-day, invitation-only event focused on the latest efforts applying wisdom in business.
3) Wisdom 2.0 Europe in Dublin, Ireland, September 16th - 18th. This will be our first ever Europe event, exploring a variety of Wisdom 2.0 themes and topics.
We also frequently hold smaller meet ups, gatherings, and retreats. You can view all upcoming events here! >>>
Soren Gordhamer, Founder of Wisdom 2.0
The people at Wisdom 2.0 come from all over the world and from many vocations, including coaches; technology staff from Apple, Microsoft, and Twitter; as well as venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.
Participants share a common interest: to live with greater wisdom, purpose, and meaning,
while using technology in ways that create a more open and healthy culture.
Speakers come from a variety of sectors, including technology, wisdom traditions, neuroscience, game development, and more. Past speakers have included the founders of Facebook, Twitter, eBay, Zynga, and Paypal, along with wisdom teachers from various traditions.
Wisdom 2.0 explores topics that cross sectors, borders, and party lines. In previous years we've explored wisdom in society, veteran's rights, education, coaching, mindfulness in tech, politics, business, neuroscience, and much, much more.
The events as much about making connections between people as about the presentations on stage. There are many opportunities to connect with people who share your interests, and explore overlaps and potential projects.
Every year we also throw a party (or two!) where people can connect, play, and enjoy both dance and silliness.
