PROUT Convention

What is the Prout Convention?

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.
