There’s a lot to talk about!
The timetable has many familiar elements (like the evening entertainment and plenary sessions) plus some more distinctive features, some of which are newcomers to the Congress schedule and have never been done before. See also the Program Overview Page for a detailed description of each program item.
There is always something going on so that at any given time there is a chance for you to choose to do something – or not.
It is specifically designed to cater to a large number of people with diverse interests and rhythms, and so we are trying to offer options if people don’t care for a particular event and would rather do something else.
As you will see below, we have a chock-a-block program, full of various events and activities. This is by design a “pick & choose” menu.
No one has to do everything, and participants need to choose how much they would like to do. You’ll want to manage your energy – and you are the only one who knows how much you can and should do.
Don’t forget to take some rest!
Each Congress day has a unique schedule
Hi early birds, hello night owls!
With the Congress program this packed and wide-ranging, we had to deviate from a daily repeating timetable. Instead, each Congress day has a specific and unique schedule.
This time, we also wanted to cater to early birds and night owls equally. For example, we therefore alternate starting times of Continuous Learning and Workshops sessions between morning and afternoon. And the popular activities (such as tai-chi, yoga, singing, walking, meditation and running) will even be offered twice, both in the morning and in the evening.
To further guide you through the program, every evening we’ll have a dedicated fixed segment in “Bob’s Corner” where Bob Britton will walk you through the following Congress Day. These events will also be streamed online and ready to be viewed later at any time.
And you’ll find the daily schedule on info screens throughout the TU and at reception.
Finally, you are always invited to ask a friendly volunteer if you get stuck.
