Innovation during the Global Crisis: You, Me, and “Us”
The Boston Pledge with Bentley University Presents Innovation during the Global Crisis: You, Me, and “Us” Saturday December 6th 2 pm to 6 pm Adamian Graduate Center Bentley University, Wilder Pavilion 175 Forest Street, Waltham, MA Turbulent times produce revolutionary change. The Renaissance in Europe and in 19th Century India, as well as the impressive progress in modern China stand as testimony to the power of the human spirit. Today, in a time of global upheaval with our fragile planet, the economic turmoil, and the divide between the rich and the poor, we have the opportunity to create new paradigms of thought and action — a new Renaissance. The Boston Pledge dedicates itself to create the very necessary dialogue that will lead to the next generation of original thinkers, selfl ess workers, and visionary leaders. Boston Pledge members are choosing to transcend the constraints of self-interest and focus on empowering people at the grass roots level. These times and the human spirit demand no less. Please join us for an afternoon of compassionate responses to our global responsibilities.
