A Transdisciplinary Approach to Social Innovation - New York

Join us for a unique transdisciplinary panel exploring strategies to expand the current ecosystem of social innovation.

This event is designed for socially minded actors from diverse sectors to come together and develop new ideas and skills.

Are you curious about how art, business, engineering, technology, the humanities, and public health can play an important role in the next wave of start ups? How can these diverse industries work together to generate new ideas and create a positive impact? What impact could be made when the best agents across a vast array of disciplines come together? What are innovative strategies for converging disciples to address some of the most complex social and society health problems facing society today? How do we ensure that social innovations are community centric and serve those who can benefit most from such innovations?
