The most exciting part of humanity’s story is yet to come.
There’s plenty of reasons to be upset about what’s happening in the world. Many of our systems, both ecological, economic and social, have reached or are reaching a crisis point. We as a society and as a species, must innovate faster than our legacy systems are failing.
Luckily we’re living in arguably the most exciting time in human history. But the problems of the world today won’t be solved by the same type of minds that created them. Expressing optimism, imagination and curiosity about the world around us is vital to us thinking
To work towards expanding the reach and breadth of human imagination in all people - especially youth - and apply that imagination to humanity’s greatest challenges.

We are curious.
We're not afraid to ask questions that shake our assumptions about our world, each other and ourselves.
We are wonderous.

We are holistic.
We use rigorous logic and science alongside art and human expression to understand things systemically.
We are transparent.
We develop deeply trustful relationships through clear communication, agreements and expectations.
