People spend little time outside of their social identity and communities are fragmented: young and old, rich and poor, black and white, conservative and progressive, vegans and carnivores, etc. It is essential in this time of tremendous peril on our planet that we connect, work together and build community that involves everyone. At this gathering we will explore different methodologies to bridge social gaps, from IONS thinkers as well as your own ideas and success stories.
