Global Conference 2017

After uncovering the physical principles behind leverage, Archimedes famously observed: "Give me a place to stand, and I shall move the Earth with it." Similarly, social innovators who effect lasting systemic change are those who find -- and fix -- the gaps that are often overlooked by others. They figure out where to stand. This panel will explore some of the more creative approaches toward making the world a better place by showcasing social entrepreneurs who are experimenting with different tools and unique approaches.
