The Prout Convention combines three events:
1. A learning and networking event for social and environmental activists (specifically Proutists)
2. A cultural gathering with talented participants sharing dance, music, stories and entertainment.
3. A spiritual retreat
The word “Prout” is an acronym for “Progressive Utilization Theory”. Prout is an alternative social and economic model based on the worldview that all of creation – animals, plants, humans and even matter itself, are moving together towards higher consciousness. We are members of one family on a common journey. This is a spiritual worldview with strong social, economic and environmental implications. These implications are explored, expressed and promoted through the Prout Convention and Prout activities around the world.
