Overview Statement for "Confronting New Beginnings" Webinar Series:


Confronting New Beginnings presents outstanding local, national and international leaders who will share their wisdom of possibilities for positive local community solutions and actions and respond through the challenging questions: What is wrong with the world and what are we doing about it? This is the moment for great change filled with transformative opportunities. The Webinars on September 3 and 10 are hosted by a stellar group of experienced and committed community leaders and organizations in the Pomona Valley, California, who have the Big View and Big Solutions at the community level. The Webinar on September 17 involves national and international impact leaders who are creating systemic change across the country. We seek NOT to be politically partisan and NOT to divide us into old battle lines. We will stretch our framework beyond “Us versus Them” to WE/US.

Session 1 – September 3: “Confronting New Beginnings: Local Big View.”
The City of Pomona has made a bold international declaration to be a Compassionate City and is an incredible incubator for new vision and opportunities. Community leaders from the Pomona Valley will share their wisdom through the lens of possibilities, transformation and local community.

Session 3 – September 17: “New Beginnings: National and Global Perspectives.”

The focus will be on bold solutions to national and global issues of paramount and urgent importance: Economy that serves human beings, justice that repairs relationships, a banking model to optimize investment in community and more.
o John Cobb, Cobb Institute, Agenda for Prophetic Faith (Moderator & Speaker)
o Mark Anielski, Economist, President & Chief Well-Being Officer at Anielski Management Inc., Canada
