From an idea of Patrizio Paoletti, 21 Minutes is the international conference dedicated to all those who want to change the world.

It is a "Network for Humanity" with world-renowned speakers to explore the issues that affect our future and orient us towards improvement.​


Being human today means becoming agents of change, playing a conscious and active part in shaping a better future for ourselves, for mankind and for our planet.

New Skills for a New Humanity

In school we have lessons about history, but not about the future. As human beings we must ask ourselves: how do we want the world to be in 10 years?

 

At 21 Minutes Humanity scientists, philosophers, artists, entrepreneurs, policymakers, next-generation leaders and world-renowned innovators will discuss current and future challenges and how to use the most renewable resource that exists on our planet: ourselves, human beings.

 

Indeed, to create real change we must start from our inner world.

"21 minutes is a Human Inner Design project, through which we disseminate ideas, techniques, strategies and tools that enable us to rethink ourselves, to re-read our lives from other points of view and to change our future
                                   "
Patrizio Paoletti

THE FOCUS OF THIS EDITION
A Better Future Starts from Within

Paolo Nespoli_1_edit 1500_r_ENG.jpg

As human beings, what role can we play for our planet and our future?

 

Climate change and economic and social imbalances have consequences that concern us as human beings.

 

Indeed, the external conditions in which we live are a reflection of our inner world. 

 

To achieve a sustainable future and humanity of peace we must create a new state of awareness regarding our inner processes and develop the ability to shape them.

 

To stimulate change a new education is required, that places awareness at the center.

21 Minutes supports the 2030 agenda
of the United Nations.

We will explore the 5Ps of Sustainable Development as they relate to human beings

Patrizio Paoletti, creator of 21 Minutes

Visionary, bestselling author, man of peace, mentor and influencer, he has dedicated his life to creating methods and practical tools for self-knowledge.
 

He advocates the value of awareness as a key to overcoming the current global crises. He has developed pedagogical models, methods and scientifically validated techniques for raising self-awareness in human beings, disseminated through the International School of Self Awareness of which he is founder. In his vision, sustainable development can only be achieved by becoming aware of one's inner processes and acquiring the ability to shape them. Hence the concept of Human Inner Design.
 

The validity of his methods is also confirmed by the neuroscientific research of his Foundation (Fondazione Patrizio Paoletti) in collaboration with international scientists, institutes and universities such as Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv, La Sapienza University in Rome and the CNR.
 

His research interests focus on the improvement of human beings, ranging from neuroscientific investigation of consciousness to innovative didactic tools to create processes of Lifelong Learning and Lifewide Education.

F.A.S.E.

The 21 Minutes Approach

From the PH.A.S.E. ® paradigm created by Patrizio Paoletti

The 21 Minutes speeches follow the PH.A.S.E. paradigm to approach the key themes from every angle of our knowledge process

2021_10_21min_assett-landing_filosofia.png

PHILOSOPHY

VISION

Any idea that is truly capable of changing the world is always based on a new vision that activates and orients us. The questions of philosophical knowledge offer us the possibility to transform uncertainty into envisioning, into a living image of what we really want.

2021_10_21min_assett-landing_arte.png

ART

INNOVATION

To change our world, we must learn to share knowledge and direct technological development. Art is the discipline that first helps us express vision and connect knowledge in new ways to generate innovation.

2021_10_21min_assett-landing_scienza.png

SCIENCE

DISCOVERY

Science is discovery, but it is also verification. For change to be grounded, it must be based on knowledge that is verified both internally and externally.

2021_10_21min_assett-landing_economia.png

ECONOMICS

SUSTAINABILITY

At the end of the creative process, when we are ready to turn intuition into action, we must measure its sustainability. No action can be considered economic if it does not benefit ourselves, others and the planet.

ORGANIZED AND PROMOTED BY

21 Minutes is a project created by Patrizio Paoletti, founder of the Patrizio Paoletti Foundation, a non-profit research organisation that has been dedicated to the study of human functioning for over 20 years. Through interdisciplinary research, the results of which are applied in education and teaching, the organisation promotes the best talents in children and adults. The Foundation, through its Research Institute for Neuroscience, Education and Didactics (RINED), promotes people's health, resilience and wellbeing and disseminates practical, immediate, innovative and effective tools that support people in learning how to know how to do, how to live in order to 'be' in a constantly changing world. Through its educational projects, the Foundation works to ensure that all individuals become more aware of their own resources, role and responsibility towards others and the planet in order to express their full potential.
