Time Matters: The National Take Back Your Time Conference
Time Matters: The National Take Back Your Time Conference will be held August 25-27 at Seattle University in Seattle, Washington. We are expecting 200-300 people for a spirited discussion about overwork and time poverty in America and what we can do to give Americans more time in their stressed lives. We’ll host luminaries in the work-leisure balance field including America’s most prominent leisure historian Benjamin Hunnicutt of the University of Iowa. This will be a wonderful opportunity to learn from experts and activists and there will be plenty of time for networking.
