Founded in Wayland, Massachusetts in 2011, Walden Forum is a free, non-profit lecture series serving the MetroWest community and beyond. Following a New England tradition of innovative thinking and creative endeavor, our events foster discussion about important ethical, religious, political, scientific, social, and other topics in a live-forum setting. We invite dynamic speakers, who are experts in their fields, to provide insight, provoke thought, and stimulate conversation about some of our time’s most compelling people, issues, stories and events. Events are held at the historic 1815 First Parish Meetinghouse at the intersection of Routes 20 and 27 in Wayland Center and at Wayland High School.

Forum presentations are captured on video and presented on public access television network channels in towns throughout the area, and in the near future we hope to make a video of each forum and make it available on the Web for a world-wide audience in streaming video or as a download using commonly available plug-ins.
