The calendar is full of international events one, at least of which will appeal to you. When you make a search conference you will find there are some that are rather specialist such as the technological events and Nano science, which do not cater for the person in the street, but there is nothing better than going to an international conference for an exchange of ideas. In our world of today there is a growing need to understand people living in different countries and to try to see things from their perspective, thus enabling us to change ours if necessary. There are global conflicts and although it may be simplistic to say so, meeting with people who live in an “enemy” state can help reduce the animosity albeit in a small way, but as they say “Mighty oaks from little acorns grow,” and if we begin to try to communicate with each other as individuals, this goes some way towards improving international relations.
There are international events which focus on the global issues which affect all of us. Conferences and seminars on Waste Management, on how best to protect fragile ecosystems, on how to make transforming biomass into energy cheaper, and of course how to continue the process of manufacturing with sustainable materials. There are events for industries which focus on Green practices and alternatives to traditional manufacturing processes, as well as conferences on oil and gas production. Although they are aimed at those working in the industry, laypersons who are interested in such issues can attend these events.
If you wish to attend as an interested party, perhaps the best ones to go to are those that have exhibitions which show off the new technologies and where you can get advice on how best to manage your own environment in an attempt to cut down on the consumption of fossil fuels and how to do your bit for the environment in an economically feasible way.
The International Lifestyle events are also good for all the family and the exhibitions will surely tempt you to part with some of your cash. If you don’t see anything that grabs your attention, your kids probably will and there’s no reason not to take them along to exhibitions to, especially those that are aimed at them. Alternatively you can join in the Woman’s Day event to be held in New York and be one of more than a million women who will participate both at the event and online. Celebrate this day with women from other countries and see what this particular event is aiming to achieve this year.
Conferences and other events are wonderful occasions to meet new people and expand your network, which is always useful.
