About This Event


                A unique opportunity to explore how to unlock the potentials within us and make a positive impact on the most challenging issues of our time; How to integrate people of multi-generations that creates a healthy sense of identity and purpose for the younger ones.


Three distinguished presenters will share:


- Inspiring life stories of people making a positive impact 


- Explore new practice methods to align your passion and values around causes you care about – from social justice to education to climate change.  


- Explore how to live a meaningful life that cements stronger family bonds and forms a pathway for new generations to follow with responsible stewardship.

- Examples and tips for getting younger generations (children, grandchildren) involved with and, excited about, the mark they want to leave on the world and the changes and choices they want to make.

Be in the know!
