BSF 2018 Reaches Audience of One Million

From June 15 to 17, 2018, Woodenfish Foundation hosted the second iteration of the interdisciplinary Buddhism and science conference. Changing its official name to “Buddhism, Science, and the Future,” the conference focused on innovations in biological sciences and their ethical implications. Shenzhen was chosen as the conference venue because it was the first city to be designated as a Special Economic Zone in China. This vibrant city is considered the rising “Silicon Valley” for its drastic urban landscape development and rapid economic growth. At the conference, Woodenfish invited 26 scholars, entrepreneurs, and Buddhist practitioners from China, U.S., Thailand, U.K., Egypt, and Denmark for this intellectual engagement. This international team constituted of scholars from Stanford University, Peking University, MIT, Chulalongkorn University, entrepreneurs, and Buddhist practitioners. More than 350 international audience attended the conference. The event was live streamed and received just over one million views.
