PLENARY

Welcome to SB’22 San Diego: ‘Recenter & Accelerate’

As we stand in this challenging time, we must slow down and connect the dots again. The challenges we have overcome in the past have made us collectively more resilient. We must draw on this wisdom of the past, learn from our successes and failures, and move forward together, stronger. Together, we must 'Recenter & Accelerate'. Our welcome plenary will lay the foundation for this new paradigm of moving forward to a regenerative future.

The Way Out is In
5:40 PM - 5:55 PM
After serving for many years as founding Editor-in-Chief at Guardian Sustainable Business, Jo began to realize that the journey to change the world begins with our own ability to look within and change ourselves. His own personal journey took him to Plum Village where he studied with Thích Nhất Hạnh, known as the "father of mindfulness" and widely recognized as the main inspiration for engaged Buddhism. Jo returns to SB’22 to share what he has learned, offering key insights into how to remain joyful and walk a steady path in this time of chaos and uncertainty..
