ebbf event in Geneva

On 3-7 May, ebbf - Ethical Business Building the Future, held its annual spring conference at Chavannes de Bogis near Geneva. The theme was “Beyond Diversity”, and I was asked to give the opening keynote on “Systems Science Beyond Diversity”. The video can be seen on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ebbf.mindfulpeople.meaningfulwork/videos/10154628682531801/?pnref=story, and my paper is available at https://iefworld.org/ddahl17e. 130 participants were encouraged to hold meaningful conversations after short keynotes, and participated in many parallel learnshops. I was reelected to the Governing Board of ebbf.
