Session 1:
Big picture thinking and doing

It begins by posing the question - why an alternative? Uh, yeah. The world’s pretty messed up right now. Why is it this way?
More importantly, it doesn’t have to be this way.  We’ll begin this session by getting to know each other a bit - we’re better together, after all.
We’ll have lots of space for Q&A, discussion, sharing, learning, connecting and maybe even some music.
The speakers joining us for this session are:
