How do we turn Houston's challenges into opportunities for bold new ideas and innovation?

Disasters can magnify and amplify problems that already exist, like segregation, poverty, social inequalities, etc. Harvey was an equal-opportunity destroyer, turning the issues of the marginalized into the issues of the mainstream. But it also brought Houstonians together to help one another -- that is our silver lining and hope: #HoustonStrong has emerged as a rallying call for the entire city as neighbors work together to help neighbors rebuild.

THIS is not a passive event -- your participation matters. Most discussions will be interactive, without a formal stage. Most activities will involve live engagement in the creative process. The agenda is geared toward meaningful relationship-building, practical implementation, real-time problem-solving, and design-based modeling. You will learn, bond, build, and create together with your peers. You will experience a unique environment that is designed for you to learn about ecosystems while creating one in real life.
