March’s theme is Change!
The world around us is always in flux. We, as individuals and as communities, affect how and why, as well as when and where, we push for change. As creatives and entrepreneurs, makers and doers — we have the chance to (re)shape and (re)define the world around us. This month, 137 cities (give our newest chapters a virtual high-five!) will be exploring the shifting lenses and multifaceted theme of Change. It was chosen by our Barcelona chapter and illustrated by the Barcelona-based Victor Bregante. The conversations will be as interesting and complex as the topic itself, with speakers including:
- Jacqueline Novogratz, the founder & CEO of Acumen, an organization dedicated to changing how the world tackles poverty (New York City)
- Mathew Chow, a design lead at IDEO who thinks about organizing for complexity and change (Vancouver)
- Edreys Wajed, a high school art teacher who practices 'multipotentialitism,' a way to use constant change to fuel creativity (Buffalo, their first event!)
- Elmar Mock, the co-creator of the Swatch watch whose philosophy of innovation has led to being an inventor in more than 150 patent families (Geneva)
