“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change… We need not wait to see what others do.” – Gandhi
Trapped in the rat race. Bombarded by bad news. Exhausted by society’s insistence that we give, give, give and get nothing back. Is it any wonder that stress and depression are global health emergencies?
At How To Academy, we believe it’s time to fight back against the rising tide of anxiety and despair. That’s why we’ve partnered with The New York Times to create a new kind of festival – one dedicated to the philosophy of being the change you want to see.
We’ve brought together a spectacular line-up from across the globe to share insights for shaking up lives, careers, and society as a whole.
You’ll attend masterclasses and keynotes filled with evidence-based ideas for invigorating your physical and emotional health, and growing in compassion, courage and resilience.
You’ll meet eminent entrepreneurs and business psychologists, who’ll teach the skills required to thrive in the world of 2019: from leadership to resilience, communication to coping with overload.
And you’ll hear from globally renowned politicians, artists and activists on what part you can play in the fight for a better future.
This isn’t a day of self-improvement for its own sake: it’s a day of self-improvement for the sake of the planet. The battle for equality, climate justice, and the future of democracy begin with the individual – but before you can change the world, you first need to change yourself. Join us for one unforgettable day in September, and we’ll show you how.
