PUBLIC DIALOGUES & WORKSHOPS
ICE will organize and promote public dialogues in cities around the U.S. Facilitated by Dartmouth theoretical physicist and ICE Director Marcelo Gleiser, the events will focus on fundamental questions central to ICE’s mission. The presenters—scientists, humanists and spiritual leaders—will be scholars and intellectual leaders of the highest caliber, capable of providing intellectual depth, breadth, and openness. The dialogues will be live-streamed to the world, so that far-away viewers can actively participate and ask questions of the presenters. The events will also be video-recorded and made available on ICE’s website.
Each evening dialogue will be followed by a follow-up workshop the following morning from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, with 25-30 participants selected through an application process. The workshops will offer the opportunity for members of the public to directly engage in a more in-depth fashion with some of the topics addressed the previous evening. The workshops will be held, in most cases, with the dialogue speakers and will be moderated by ICE Director Marcelo Gleiser.
