The theme of this year’s convention, Compost Capitalism!, is an appropriate metaphor for the demise of capitalism’s all-pervading dominance in our lives.

The first session of each day after an introduction will be guided active participatory discussions on the convention on the theme of the day. The discussions will focus on two questions.
