the-innovators-changing-the-world-map-website-1032x576

Meet the remarkable innovators who are pioneering new ways to change the world and open a window on (and a roadmap to) a different and better future.

In this talk Mark Stevenson will highlight some of the innovations covered in his new book which include – in Boston how patients are helping each other find the best treatments by using the medical equivalent of a dating website; in Jharkhand, rural farmers who are exceeding the yields of the Green Revolution with techniques inspired by a Jesuit priest; in the small Austrian town of Güssing,  a community that made itself completely independent from the big energy suppliers by turning bark that used to just rot on the forest floor into electricity; in Detroit, how urban farming and a community-run food system has turned a city on the brink of collapse into a food capital; and in Lincoln, a school – the Hartsholme Academy – that an ex night-club manager turned into a beacon of educational excellence by asking the students to mark each other’s work.

This inspiring talk will show what can be done to address the world’s most pressing dilemmas.
