"Vital Questions for a Living Planet" presented by Dr. Katharine Wilkinson

Existential questions live at the heart of the climate crisis—questions that call us to make sense of this moment, imagine what's possible, and participate in this era of great transformation. In this wide-ranging, interdisciplinary keynote, Dr. Katharine Wilkinson invites us to grapple with what it means to be human on a changing planet and offers her insights about rapidly, radically reshaping society. Our call, as members in the community of life, is to live into the answers together. Learn more about Dr. Wilkinson.

"Music as Medicine Through the Madness" presented by Craig Minowa

The multiple crises of the year 2020 weigh heavily on the hearts of humanity and have left us feeling a desperate need to mend our cultural, biological, spiritual and planetary wounds. But increased polarity has stifled that healing by making it harder and harder to communicate with each other and our inner selves. New evidence suggests that millions of years ago, humans started singing, as a form of communication, well before we developed language. Our ancestors gathered around the fire and used song for communicating with each other, the animals, and the gods, and deemed music as one of the highest forms of medicine and ceremony. Join Cloud Cult's Craig Minowa as he performs an intimate set of songs by the campfire and postulates how we used music as medicine "back then," and why it is an essential power source we need to carry us forward toward healthier communities and a healthier planet.
