“The Chopra Foundation created the Sages and Scientists event to support the foundation’s mission of improving the sustainability, health, and wellbeing of the planet and all the members of the human family,” said Chopra Foundation founder Dr. Deepak Chopra.”We’re at a precarious time in human history, and by bringing together the best minds in a broad range of fields and expertise, we’re creating a fertile ground for the birth of new ideas, collaborations, and a more compassionate society. At the Sages and Scientists Symposium, we’ll be addressing some of the most urgent questions about the future of our planetary and human evolution,” Dr. Chopra said.
