Activity description

Social Media Workshop – Social media is the most effective platform for local and global communication of this time. Proutists are already utilizing it in many ways, but there is still scope for improvement. Our social media workshop is divided into two parts: In the first session we will try to get an overview of what we can expect and how can we utilize social media. We will also get some ideas to try them out immediately, so in the second part we can talk more about our practical experiences and challenges. The goal is to reach those who are already using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tik Tok or any other social media platform to communicate the experiences and cooperate in our efforts and to encourage those who are to hesitating to participate. Both sessions are facilitated by Arun, who during his first Prout Convention in Denmark in 1990 set up a piece of paper on the notice board in case anyone would give their email so that proutists could network and communicate, but he got no addresses then. But he has not given up trying and has meanwhile used many social media platforms for communication.

Presenting Prout Workshop-  Dada Maheshvarananda draws from his decades-long experience of presenting Prout to the public and enlightens us on his best practices. You will also be invited to create your own presentation of what Prout is to you, and present it to the other participants.

Networking Workshop – Like yeast in the bread, although those of us with clarity and dynamism for social change are always in a minority, our role is a transformational catalyst, meant to trigger chain reactions that lift up society as whole. This cannot happen in a vaccum, or by talking only with those that already agree with us.  The yeast must mix and spread evenly throughout the flour dough, and likewise we must find ways to connect and integrate with other positive forces for change in our communities.  Didi Ananda Devapriya will share practical experiences from her current work at the border between Ukraine and Romania facilitating communication and cooperation between NGOs,  as well as her experience in promoting Neohumanist education through professional networks to illustrate the power of sharing of key ideas through strategic networking,  She will give practical tips how to increase your own impact and personal agency through networking.

World Government class – Chandra Shekhara is a long-time Proutist and academic who is currently writing a book on world government and world constitution. A central topic in Prout, we will have the opportunity to learn his findings while writing the book.

Prout Nuts & Bolts class – What makes Prout work? Asking this question and finding answers fosters clarity over “How to Apply Prout” to analyze current issues and find solutions to socio-economic problems.

Amrstara and Shriraksha are Prout enthusiasts. They are eager to discuss some key Prout concepts with fellow Prout activists to facilitate deeper thinking about practical application Prout.

  • Understanding Economic Depressions & Solutions

Calling all activists! – Proutist Universal has been busy with creating all sorts of activities that promote Prout and engage new and old Proutists. This effort, which is significant already, needs to be taken a step further. In this session we will try to organize Proutist activities with the different participants.
