The Sustainable Wisdom Conference brings together an interdisciplinary set of scholars and artists ready to integrate first-nation and mainstream contemporary understandings to move toward a flourishing planet. The speakers were selected for their specialty areas which range from science, history, education, psychology, and anthropology. The purpose of the conference and accompanying books is to bring to a wider audience an awareness of “first ways,” what we know about their effects on flourishing and how to integrate them into modern life for global flourishing. The conference is hosted by the Pokagon Band of the Potawatomi and will be held at the University of Notre Dame. Cosponsored by the Center for Social Concerns.
