How to Connect With People and Ideas That Matter

Finding the real ideas that can change the world and the people who can implement them require unusual approaches. The trends and talents are in places that are not obvious, such as in the Brazilian favelas, in artistic movements, among school children and retired citizens, and maybe in countries you never heard of.

Innovation requires an open mind and generosity. And it must be driven by inclusion if it seeks to cause positive social change. In this session, you will learn why Olabi, a social organization based in Brazil, connects elderly people, black women, kids, artistic and cultural movements, executives from big companies, makers, human rights activists, and philosophers through tech to build a more inclusive future. And why we work so closely with countries in Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia.
