A Parallel event to the Toronto G20 Summit 
Hosted by Grail Springs Transformational Retreat (Bancroft, Ontario)

"It has been said that our generation is the first in history that can decide whether it’s the last in history. We need to add that our generation is also the first in history that can decide whether it will be the first generation of a new phase in history. We have reached a watershed in our social and cultural evolution." (Ervin Laszlo, Founder of The Club of Budapest, Author of WorldShift 2012)


The Worldshift Movement is gathering together global visionaries and ‘actionists’ including: Dr. Ervin Lazlo, H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Neale Donald Walsch, Barbara Marx Hubbard (all pictured above), and many others, for the ‘Worldshift 20 Summit’.

The WS20 Summit includes a full-day public and media event featuring the ‘Awakening the Dreamer Symposium’, and interaction focused on personal and group commitments to local / global action. The Summit is being convened as a parallel event to the G20 Summit of national leaders in Toronto, Ontario, June 26-27, and will contrast old and new approaches to addressing our collective challenges.
The mission of the Worldshift 20 Summit is to consider the major challenges and opportunities that affect the well-being of every person on the planet from a holistic perspective which represents all humanity.
Its core purpose is to transcend short-term, self-serving economic and political interests recognizing that thinking and acting in exclusive reference to narrow national or multi-national agendas cannot solve the multitude of global crises currently confronting us.
The urgent need is for a longer-term perspective that focuses both on the challenges and on the related opportunities for creating the foundations of a peaceful, just and sustainable world during this period of large-scale global transition.
“The WS20 Summit will address our current global challenges and opportunities on behalf of the whole human family,” said David Woolfson, Co-Initiator of the Worldshift Movement and President of The Club of Budapest Canada.
“The generations alive today have the unprecedented opportunity to envision and begin to build a new global society where all people can live in peace and harmony with each other and our planetary home. Millions of people worldwide are actively engaged in this crucial work today.”
"The Summit also seeks to support delegates at the G20 discussing how to resolve the World’s economic crisis by offering dialogue around other inter-related social, economic and environmental contexts such as Peace, Justice, Sustainability, Social Innovation and Conscious Evolution," said Gareth Strangemore-Jones, Co-Initiator of the Worldshift Movement and Creative Member of The Club of Budapest. 
The Worldshift 20 Summit is further intended to co-create a collaborative mission and global meta-Campaign focused on the unique Year 2012 opportunity for larger-scale personal and planetary change.
