Economists once speculated that with the growth of technology, humans would have more time on our hands, and with it we’d expand into leisure activities. In fact, the opposite has happened: we’re working now more than ever. It’s hardly surprising: work gives us activities, meaning, purpose and community. But what if there’s more to life? Many feel the urge to take a step back, but it’s easier said than done. So how can we slow down while keeping up? This discussion draws insight from neuroscience, mindfulness and more to offer some answers.

Today’s speakers include:
Warren Bobrow, The Cocktail Whisperer
Rachel Hughes, Founder & Director, New World Native
Tricia Katz, Senior Software Engineer, Outdoor Voices
Lisa Pike, Patagonia, VP of Environmental Activism

Join the Pool Stage at Palm Park and witness ideas unfold and evolve!
