October 19-20, 2018 – Washington, DC
What does it mean to be strong? When we face challenges, do we stand rigid against the wind – or are we energized, like a turbine? Complex systems are often fragile, but some actually become stronger when stressed. We’ll explore systems and processes that appear UNBREAKABLE, and ask how our civic systems and our shared culture can withstand the deep uncertainties of our time.
