Join renowned philosopher Roman Krznaric as he explores the power of empathy in driving social and political transformation. Drawing on examples from history and contemporary grass-roots peacebuilding projects, Krznaric will demonstrate how the ability to understand and connect with others can lead to meaningful change on a global scale. He will also distinguish between affective empathy, or a shared emotional response, and cognitive empathy, or the capacity to understand others' perspectives. As one of the world's leading experts on empathy, Krznaric is uniquely qualified to inspire and motivate you to embrace this vital skill in your own life and work.
In this fascinating keynote speech, Roman delves into the concept of long-term thinking and its significance in contemporary society. In this talk Roman examines the intellectual history and practical applications of this idea. Roman asserts that society, particularly in wealthy countries, has a tendency to prioritize short-term gain over long-term consequences, resulting in issues such as ecological degradation and technological risk. The talk offers six strategies for improving long-term thinking and addressing pressing issues like the climate crisis, artificial intelligence risks, and systemic racism.
Are you ready to reclaim the ancient ideal of carpe diem and make it your own? Join philosopher Roman Krznaric as he delves into the concept of seizing the day and its potential for personal and collective transformation. Based on his book of the same name, Krznaric will explore how consumer culture, social media, and the mindfulness industry have co-opted the idea of living in the present moment and how we can reclaim it for ourselves. He will also discuss how embracing a "carpamus diem" mentality - seizing the day together - can help us tackle issues such as the global ecological crisis.
