Responding to a sense of an accelerating pace of urban life, mindfulness and social consciousness have become popular topics in recent years. What does it mean to be socially conscious or mindful, from a personal or societal perspective, in today’s context? Is it primarily a state of mind – or worse, a buzzword – or does it manifest itself in actions that matter? Join us as our panellists share what social consciousness means to them and how they translate it into action.
