“Is Spirituality a Solution to the Economic Problems of Today?” A Talk by Dr Soheil Abedian

September 16, 2018, in Videos > Talk, by

The Gold Coast Baha’i Community in Australia hosts information evenings that seek to explore a Baha’i perspective on topics that relate to the life of society. In this talk titled “Is Spirituality a Solution to the Economic Problems of Today?”, Dr. Soheil Abedian explores alternative economic models that narrow the gap between the rich and the poor. 

Dr. Soheil Adedian holds a Masters degree in architecture from Graz University and an honorary doctorate from Bond University. He is the founder and executive chairman of Sunland Group Limited, an Australian development company. Dr. Abedian is also the chairman of the Adedian Foundation and the Sunland Foundation, which conduct philanthropic educational, research and health work.

Special thanks to the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the Gold Coast for organizing these talks and for granting Baha’i Blog permission to film them. You can find out more about the Gold Coast Baha’i Community here on their website: www.goldcoast.bahai.org.au
