An Optimistic Challenge

8 September 2012 from 8am to 6pm

In a world where com­plex­ity, con­flict, cri­sis and self-interest seem to dom­i­nate, we want to take a dif­fer­ent approach. Let’s instead imag­ine a world where prob­lems still exist, but learn­ing from fail­ure and our pre­pared­ness to refuse to say “I can’t” guides us towards an opti­mism where we believe that all prob­lems have solu­tions if we address them in a sus­tain­able way. In this, we embrace An Opti­mistic Chal­lenge.
