Ladies and gentlemen,
First a word to our newcomers:
Welcome to our Symi Symposium
We hope this will be a unique experience for you.
A number of reasons:
1) we bring together a special group of people to discuss openly, freely, passionately about how we hope to change things in our world. Minds, experience, youthful enthusiasm combine to brainstorm on the complex and daunting challenges of our time
2) we do so in the most informal way. Dress as you like. Bring in your spouses, partners, children, to participate, they are most welcome.
