The Nantucket Academy will bring together inspired speakers and a community of lifelong learners to examine the world's big questions. We will convene at the annual Nantucket Project event from September 13-16, 2018. In 2018, we will expressly dive into the concept of humility. The willingness to admit how little one knows opens the door to deeper understanding. We believe that the discovery of new spiritual information, scientific breakthroughs and communal healing cannot happen without exercising humility.
We will seek out (4) speakers who have researched and/or whose personal experiences or inner lives embody the essence of humility.
We will also carefully curate a community of (40) opinion influencers to join us as honorary fellows. These fellows play a vital role as seekers and messengers of the learning that occurs at our events.
At both the event and our satellite gatherings we will facilitate Speaker-Fellow engagement to allow for an even deeper look into the concept of humility and its increasingly important role in today’s inward-looking and polarized world.
We believe this project is unique among thought-leadership forums. We focus on "what matters," i.e., the big questions about humankind's place in the universe. This year’s focus on humility is central to those big questions. We are confident in our ability to successfully deliver impact because the strength of our team, and the simple, transparent methodology we use: humility and hard work.
