Fred Matser's recent speaking events:

As the founder of Fred Foundation, Fred opened and closed the symposium which featured state-of-the-art research and therapy innovations with speakers like Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, Dr. Deepak Chopra and Prof. dr. Philip Scheltens. The symposium was an invitation to the audience for reflection and dialogue on the way we approach alzheimer and brain health. 

21 October 2014: One World with Deepak Chopra, New York, USA

22-24 August 2014: Sages&Scientists Symposium, USA
Fred spoke at the annual Sages&Scientists symposium.

The symposium explored a series of fantastic emerging facts with the incorporation of the creative arts such as dance, music, spoken word and art:
•       Science and Consciousness – Frontiers of Science and Consciousness
•       Leadership – Defining a New Leadership: Serving a New Humanity
•       Wellbeing (Sustainability, Environment, Health, Technology, Economy) – Conscious Living
•       Peace and Justice – Living Harmoniously
•       World Transformation: Challenges and Creative Solutions – It’s Time

Fred shared the lessons he has learned until so far. Amongst others he talked about his shifting perception of money as well as what in his eyes are the most effective ways to really help and empower people in the context of a greening environment. The money he is providing for projects and other initiatives is not anymore his money as he has donated it to foundations of which he is the founder and board member. He sees this money as a tool to influence processes in life. Basically with money one can choose to invest it according to the development of one’s own level of consciousness. In Fred’s case he aims to do such in an all-inclusive way that is to say, to invest it for the good of all or at least the many. In this respect he thinks it to be most important that we learn to filter the products of our thinking through the wisdom of our hearts.

22-26 April 2014: Schumacher College, Totnes, UK
Fred Matser was one of the teachers alongside Mr. Matthew Fox and Mr. Satish Kumar in the course 'The Return of Wisdom - Finding Our Way with Money and Work'. In a worldview that is dominated by a sense of scarcity, fear and competition reign alongside a win/lose attitude. In contrast, in a worldview that values sharing over hoarding and inclusion over exclusion, we can move beyond win/lose, to community or win/win. The course looked at how business, society and we as individuals can rebuild our foundations to be less about win/lose and scarcity and more about community caring and sharing. 

2 September 2013: Green Cross International General Assembly, Geneva, Switzerland
Since 1993, Green Cross has responded to the combined challenges of security, poverty and environmental degradation. Our mission is to ensure a sustainable and secure future for all, seeking solutions through dialogue, mediation and co-operation.In 2013, the year marking our 20th anniversary, the world is at a decisive crossroads. Warning signs signal dangers all around: unchecked climate change and resulting extreme weather events; continued presence of weapons of mass destruction; 800 million people living without access to water; rampant poverty.

29 May -3 June 2012: Science and Nonduality Conference, Doorn, The Netherlands
The Science and Nonduality Conference is a yearly event where preeminent scientists, philosophers, authors, and teachers, gather to explore a new understanding of who we are, both as individuals and as a society. This exploration is grounded in cutting-edge science and consistent with the ancient wisdom of nonduality - the deep understanding of the interconnectedness of life.

The theme of the European conference was 'The Nature of the Self' - an exploration of the perception of the Self from scientific, philosophical, phenomenological, psychological etc. perspectives.

18-19 May 2012: Europe in the 21st Century: Challenges and Opportunities, Luxembourg
This conference was organised by the Luxembourg Institute for European and International Studies and the New Policy Forum (Gorbachev Forum), in cooperation with the Representation of the European Commission in Luxembourg and the think-tank Notre Europe. The speakers expressed their views on Europe’s recent political developments and options for the future and was attended by about 50 participants and over 300 observers. Fred Matser spoke about involving more "heart" in Europe's decisions and policies. 

3-5 March 2012: Sages and Scientists Symposium, USA
The three-day Sages and Scientists: The Merging of a New Future Symposium explored a series of fantastic emerging facts in both a scientific and spiritual context. Such a contemporary synthesis of ideas and facts allows science and soul to coexist comfortably, and paves the way for the future evolution of humanity. Fred Matser spoke about the topic of scarcity with a contribution titled ‘Does Scarcity Exist?’.

22 june 2011 and 29 july 2011: Nyenrode Business University, The Netherlands
Economics is based on the assumption that there is scarcity in our world. The topic of these talks was "Does scarcity exist?". Fred Matser shares a different perception of scarcity and the related phenomenon of competition. He places scarcity in the context of the finite: time and space.There are 2 options: do we choose to compete or do we choose to compare with care in order to share with care?
