The Center has Fallen
The world continues to change around us at a rapid pace. Old paradigms and models of what constitutes success are outdated. The most interesting work, in art, science, business, and conservation no longer happens in the academy or in urban centers. It is coming from communities and individuals on the edges. Hear from a range of individuals working in finance, technology, ecology, art and social justice who are doing great outside of traditional social structures—and why. The center has truly fallen. Where will the next great idea come from?
