The Feast: A dinner event to discuss equality

Back by popular demand! This time we're putting equality on the table to discuss what we can do locally and globally to promote a kinder, more welcoming world.

The Feast is a global dinner party. People around the world have held dinners like this to talk about meaningful topics. At this dinner, we will explore the question: "With increasing loneliness, how do we create more belonging?"

Humans are social; we learn and grow through connection. Relationships are thought to be a primary factor in a fulfilling life. Yet not everyone feels connected: Almost half of Americans and one quarter of Europeans say they feel lonely. 

We think this is a problem that can be solved. 

Join us for a dinner discussion on how we can create more belonging in our lives and for others.

NOTE: Seating is limited. Register in person at Learning House. 500npr to reserve your seat.

For more information visit www.feastongood.com, find Learning House on Facebook, or see photos from our last dinner event on climate change: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.596884590508605&type=1&l=d3e99fdff4.
