The aim of the conference is to provide a platform for global cooperation among people with a professional interest in psychedelics. We aspire to facilitate the exchange of both scientific knowledge and real practical experience – at a global level and across a variety of disciplines, thus creating new synergies.

The event will encourage innovative discussions on approaches to psychedelics and on the unequivocal position these substances still hold in the modern age – despite the lack of available evidence – in order to support their successful integration into our society. To achieve this, an in-depth review of current challenges associated with their use should be a key interest.

Therefore, besides exploring potential benefits, this year we aim to focus more on their harmful potential and incorporate cross-cultural perspectives to establish guidelines for safe use, harm-reduction and prevention strategies when working with psychedelics, alternative states of consciousness, and technologies.
