10-Day Collective Trauma Summit Starts September 22
Registration is now open for the second annual Collective Trauma Summit, organized by Thomas Hübl. Last year this summit attracted over 50,000 participants and featured more than 30 talks with trauma experts, activists, and cultural visionaries.
This year’s Summit is a 10-day event (September 22 – October 1) with 45+ expert speakers, panel discussions, poets, and musicians.
Thomas says this expanded event is timely:
“Now more than ever humanity is starting to come together to be aware of collective trauma and to explore what together we can do to prevent, address and heal it.
“With recent global events on our planet the topic has really been brought to the surface.
“We believe our upcoming Summit can have a big positive impact in the world at a time when we need it the most.”
8+ Live Events
Each day features recorded and live events. Thomas and special guest panelists will guide us exploring important issues such as climate change, racism, and inter-generational trauma.
