Theme: Zimbabwe's Emerging Future Pt 1: Connection

This event occurred on
September 10, 2016
Harare, Harare

One of the core human needs necessary for humanity's collective progression is CONNECTION. Connection allows for diverse perspectives to be shared and heard. It is this sharing and exchange of ideas that is the catalyst for the evolution of societies. Yet, currently there are systems which hinder citizen engagement and and ultimately society's progress.

This salon takes a look at how current systems react to change as well as how we as a society can improve collectively through connecting.
