Emergence - The ABS Summit 2021 is an online Global Summit that brings together academicians, social scientists, thought leaders, practitioners, and policymakers from across the globe to share their thoughts, experiences and research on various aspects of Applied Behavioural Sciences.
At the 3rd ABS Summit, learn about the new developments and of different perspectives that individuals, organizations and societies need to collectively develop and adapt to in today’s challenging environment that the world is currently witnessing. The insights will revitalize those in pursuit of the ever-evolving contribution of Applied Behavioral Sciences.
It aims to provide an interdisciplinary platform for dialogue and exchange of ideas, innovations and possibilities to consciously make choices that are effective for the present moment and the future of humanity, including individual, organizational, societal and spiritual wellness.
Three Exciting Themes!
➤ Beyond Barriers: Co-creating in complexity and adversity
Barriers are varied in tone, texture and location. Some barriers are internal to individual – beliefs, mental models, shadows, defences, perceptual, emotional, cultural. Often boundaries become barriers with potential harmful effects. When pushed, individuals, groups and organisations have risen to demolish the barriers. Rising beyond barriers require creative ways of being. Being sensitive to the trade-offs and continually shaping the generative outcomes is what this sub-theme is all about.
➤ Emerging Trends Economics, Emotionality and Society
Economics is a field critical to survival and growth of societies. Often economics also takes a reductionist view of the ‘human’ as a statistic. Social sciences are another field that is equally relevant but takes a polar view of economics. Applied Behavioural Science could be a bridge that connects these disparate fields. Harnessing human emotions and economics to shape a thriving and prosperous society is the focus of this sub-theme.
➤ Continuity in change Honoring Ancient to Contemporary Spiritual Practices
Change coexists with that which is eternal and timeless. Spiritual streams of thought like Yoga Sutras, Taoism, Buddhism, Sufism etc. embody that which is timeless. Co-existing with these are contemporary practices like Neurosciences, Quantum Physics, Process Work etc. This subtheme offers a space to showcase convergence of these themes and the application and impact of such practices in groups or organizations.
