With Zoe Weil
The world becomes what we teach. It is possible to create a just, healthy, and peaceful world, and the most profound and strategic path lies with education. If we provide people, in age appropriate ways, with the knowledge, skills, and motivation to become solutionaries for a better world, we will watch the unfolding of regenerative and equitable systems across the globe.
Listeners will experience:
- Hope and inspiration
- Practical tools and a clear vision forward
- An understanding of the importance of addressing interconnected systems
