Omega Institute's 'Where We Go From Here' Conference

Business

As a global community we depend on shared resources including clean water, energy, a just economy, access to food and the Internet.

However, access to these necessities is threatened by economic, political and social systems that do not support what’s best for the vast majority of people, or the natural world.

At Omega Institute’s second annual Where We Go From Here conference, led by activists and thinkers on the front lines of change, we will explore the Commons model as a unifying paradigm to move us forward.

Whether you are a concerned citizen, business leader, educator, student, architect, builder or politician, this gathering will inform and motivate you to take action in your own community.

We hope you’ll join us, Oct. 24-26, alongside speakers Vandana Shiva, Van Jones, Jeremy Rifkin, Winona LaDuke, Bill McKibben, David Bollier and more.

For nearly a century, scientists thought that malaria could only spread in places where it is really hot. That's because malaria is spread by a tiny parasite that infects mosquitoes, which then infect humans — and this parasite loves warm weather. In warmer climates, the parasite grows quickly inside the mosquito's body. But in cooler climates, the parasite develops so slowly that the mosquito will die before the it is fully grown.
