The moderators will facilitate eight focused discussions on topics that both unite and divide us within families, communities, societies and nations. The goal will be to expand everyone’s thinking and perspectives, but not necessarily to arrive at answers. Examples of discussion topics include: Race and Politics; Aging—to what end?; Individualism; Recreating Life after Retirement; Sharing Utopia; and New Tribalism.
