I am lucky enough to be participating in an Aspen Institute Conference in Berlin. The topic is Risk and Uncertainty: Cultural Approaches to Risk Management. We have participants from Germany, America and Lebanon. The conversations so far have been very interesting in talking about different perceptions of risk across cultural and social groups. So far, at least in this group it seems that social group is more relevant than cultural group. The next two days we will look at this assessment of risk in different combinations as well including Gender.
We also had dinner last night at the site of the Potsdam Conference at the end of the war.
