When I first heard of the School of Social Change, I didn't quite know what to expect. But what I found out is that it's innovative, evidence-based, collaborative, provocative, and just plain fun. To get multidisciplinary people, from various walks of life yet all dedicated to both understand a key social problem and transform society in fresh ways around that problem--in a breathtaking natural setting--is transformative. Bonds are created that last well beyond the events per se. I urge you to get involved!
