From neighborhoods to nations, the strength of our social fabric is often the difference between growth and stagnation in normal times, and between resilience and disorder in a crisis. How can we, as leaders, strengthen community ties, build trust, and leave future generations a robust social infrastructure? What does that look like at the neighborhood level, or in a region or nation?
Watch a series of rapid fire conversations between five leaders — all awardees of the McNulty Prize Catalyst Fund and Fellows of the Aspen Global Leadership Network — working to advance solutions that uplift their communities. From disaster preparedness in East Harlem and ethical journalism in India’s northeast, to reversing the brain drain in Nigeria, addressing the mental health of rural farmers, and delivering trusted health information to Black and Hispanic communities in the US — all of these leaders are building solutions to deeply entrenched challenges alongside their communities.
As we emerge to a changed world in 2022, we invite you to engage with these ideas and the inspiring leaders who are driving them forward.
