-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Introduction

30 selected projects and initiatives tackling inequality in the health care system from all over Europe will be presented. The initiatives are divided up in four clusters:

I: Equality of Opportunity and Access to Preventive Care

Which initiatives can be taken as examples for Austria? Together with a team of professional facilitators, the pioneers and participants will improve suggestions on how to evolve the Austrian health care and social system.

Mary-Alice ARTHUR

Member, Art of Hosting Team; Founder, SOAR, New Zealand

 Mary Alice Arthur is a Story Activist. See more about her work on www.getsoaring.com. She specialises in using story in service of positive systemic shift and to access and create collective intelligence on critical issues. She has been in, and around, groups for as long as she can remember, keen to discover and empower the stories, visions, dreams and purpose that live behind the stated reason of people coming together. She sees her art as creating and hosting spaces for wise action, where people can step in, step up and step out powerfully together, clear about their common foundation, committed to their highest aspirations and taking back the power of their stories. She is a masterful practitioner of participatory practice, and a steward of Art of Hosting, using the practice in groups, organisations and communities around the world.
 
 She brings a love of powerful questions and the craft of creating compelling conversations to her gift of working with stories. She has major projects to her credit demonstrating the power of narrative and facilitation to set the scene, establish the foundation and continue the integration of positive change. Her powerful results from a telecommunications merger project were written up in the book Wake Me Up When the Data is Over: How Organizations Use Stories to Drive Results (ed: Lori Silverman).
 
 She has developed and facilitated conferences and events for a wide variety of groups around the world and has attended hundreds more. She is an inspiring and sought after presenter. For more than 20 years she has been working with groups of all types and has been an intentional nomad, working, contributing and living all over the world. She is now resident in Denmark working in tandem with the Samsø Energy Academy and alongside organisations and groups seeking to build their story and offering to the world and their capacity for collective wise action.
