The 2-day gathering will bring together primarily Chinese-speaking scholars and practitioners from various psychological and therapeutic backgrounds to discuss issues of transcultural communication and identity in the context of socio-ecological transformation. In an interactive group process, 40-50 participants will reflect current challenges around personal and collective identity and how they can help overcome intercultural divides and communication barriers. Specifically, the participants will explore the relevance of a “biophilic character orientation” (Erich Fromm) in the context of sustainability and how to cultivate it as a leadership quality in transformative (research) processes.
