Usually disagreements are not about figuring out what's true about the world, but we’ll try to make this event an exception. We are going to explore an interactive format for having more productive and informative disagreements.
You'll be asked to rate on a sheet of paper (which will look like this) whether you "agree", "disagree" or are "unsure" on a number of controversial topics. You'll then be paired with another attendee at random for a few minutes, at which point you'll compare your sheet with theirs to find a topic of disagreement. You'll then follow a step-by-step disagreement process to see how much you can learn from each other on that issue, and try to better see the perspective of the other side. Then after a little while, you'll switch to a new person and new topic and the process will repeat.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
