What It's All About

Web of Change is where diverse leaders working at the frontiers of technology and social change come to up their game. Over five days, we candidly share front-line campaign experiences, reflect deeply on our impact and find the network and meaning we need to do transformational work. Web of Change balances professional development and technical skills sharing with relationship building.

There’s nothing like Web of Change — it’s a thrilling convergence of dreamers and doers working at the leading edges of their fields, all doing their damnedest to catalyze the change our world so desperately needs.

The Esalen Experience

Esalen Institute in Big Sur California is 27-acres of Pacific coastline paradise. At Esalen, we've found a remarkable, remote natural setting that's just a few hours drive from San Francisco and an hour from the Monterey Airport.

Esalen is a retreat center devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society. Watch this video to experience some of Esalen's great beauty.

Esalen provides accessible accommodation for guests with disabilities, though some property access can be difficult.

Pricing & Scholarships

In 2014, Web of Change gave away more than $30,000 in scholarships. Scholarships are available again this year because we want successful applicants to be able to attend the conference, regardless of their ability to pay. 2015 conference pricing will range from US $1075 - $2950, depending on your accommodation preference.
