Conversations toward the Life-Centered Economy

Wednesday, January 17, 2024, 5-10 p.m.

Heimatmuseum, Museumstrasse 1, 7260 Davos, Switzerland

The House of Beautiful Business invites you to a series of conversations at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting on the life-centered economy—an economy that rewards cooperation over domination, regeneration over extraction, and respects life both inside us and around us. We’ll discuss the narrative, practical, and ethical dimensions of life-centeredness and explore the ways that cognitive, emotional, somatic, and artificial intelligence can combine to make it a reality. !
