The Age of Meaning

9th Forum – November 7th 2017

We all seek purpose in our lives, yet in this “bigger, better, faster” world, what meaning do we give to things beyond simply their economic value? Beyond utility, what deeper experience, both individual and collective, can they provide? How can we enhance the lives and the world around us? These are important questions that run across topics of creativity, community, craftsmanship, art, adventure, business and sustainability. The ultimate question being: how does our brain create meaning?

Speakers from diverse backgrounds will share their insight at the 9th Forum de la Haute Horlogerie which, as always, promises to be a unique opportunity to consider and discuss the forces that are shaping our present and reshaping our future.
