Making A Difference – 2020 Conference Theme

Our inquiry for the 2020 Conference for Global Transformation is an opportunity to discover living true to what our lives are about.

The idiom “Making a Difference” has been used so often in marketing campaigns, promotional materials, and our own day-to-day conversations that many of us tune it out. Sometimes we doubt our ability to cause a positive outcome. Even so, most of us yearn to live meaningful lives.

This year, we invite you to inquire into, and stand for, the difference you want to make. When there is the possibility of acting to forward the difference we want to make, things that are in the way present themselves. Actions leave us in the world discovering making a difference, a function of the promises and commitments we have made and the accountabilities we hold.

Inquiry is a powerful practice for both discovering what is important to us and expanding our access to fulfilling on our commitments. When we practice going beyond knowing together, in this social commons of transformation, we encounter unforeseen opportunities and invent new worlds of possibility.
