To search out new ideas for the new decade. To find out some of the new thoughts that will shape our near future. These are people who have turned dreams into actions. This is where inspiration meets action.
Our speakers will deliver talks on an eclectic range of issues from the importance of race and land-ownership in South Africa to the ways dance can make us change the way we think. This will be an opportunity to hear from people who are thinking and acting their way through new challenges - environmental, mathematical, cultural, psychological, political.
