Open Circle

pg16bDr. Patricia Klauer presents “May I Have Your Attention, Please? Making the case for a Conscious Attention Economy” at the LCS on Sunday, March 17, 10:30 a.m.

Our attention is valuable, not only because it is in high demand, but because it is powerful. The online world has created a new economy where our attention is the raw resource, and it is being extracted from us just like fossil fuels are being extracted from the earth for the carbon economy. The monetizing of our attention is having an impact on our youth, democracy, climate change and our individual moment to moment quality of life. If we are not conscious about how we pay attention, we may be squandering our most valuable asset—the moments and experiences of our life itself.

Dr. Klauer is an entrepreneur, information architect, consciousness leader and chiropractor. She pioneered new technologies with Fortune 100 companies, financial institutions, government agencies and academic institutions. She currently serves as a board member for Impact Hub Global, leads the Conscious Attention Economy Working Group that released “The Universal Principles of the Conscious Attention Economy” in collaboration with the United Nations and is the Operations Manager for FoodBank Lakeside.
