Global problems demand global solutions. However, the present international system is incapable of coping effectively with problems such as climate change, the North- South economic gap, civil wars, terrorism and pandemic diseases, among many others. Fortunately, creative thinkers have put forward numerous workable proposals for dealing with the major threats now facing humanity. Many of these will be addressed by a stellar international cast of experts at the "Creating a Workable World" conference.
Standard registration rate (includes two meals) is only $100 for the two-day event. High school and college students may attend at no cost (one meal included; pre-registration necessary). The outstanding conference agenda and all registration details (including method of paying the conference fee by check) can be found at http://www.workableworld.org/oct-2015-conf.html.
We hope that you will be able to attend, and ask that you please share this announcement via email, on your organizations' web sites, in upcoming newsletters, via social media methods, and other means.
