Using Social Labs to Address Tough Challenges

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How can we enable diverse actors to work together and make progress on tough, vital, and even "stuck" societal challenges?

Try one out with Adam Kahane and Monica Pohlmann of Reos Partners, and explore how to construct, run, and participate in social labs.
