From Buddhist scholar Jinpa Langri’s keynote address, to 180 Studio partner Sam Chaltain’s wrap-up questions, Trafalgar’s Symposium on Well-Being: The Future of Education, The Future of Humanity provided a forum for lively discourse on the morning of February 13th.
Co-Chaired by Dr. Claudia Mitchell (Director of McGill’s Institute for Human Development and Well-being) and Lucy Riddell (Co-Vice-Chair of the R. Howard Webster Foundation and principal at Five Faces Design), and moderated by Trafalgar graduate Jessica Mosher (Executive Vice-President at Nelson), the symposium brought together thought leaders ready to share insights about the power of learning to transform the individual, and society.
Judging by their questions and comments, the large audience of students, faculty, staff, parents, alumnae, and members of the wider Montreal community felt both engaged by the what they heard, and motivated to continue the conversations that began at Traf this week. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of this remarkable event!
