This is a must-participate kind of event.  Seriously, you will be smarter just for showing up.
As we face up to our most pressing issues, from climate change to economic instability, our concept of time is going to have to greatly expand so that we routinely think beyond our lifetimes. Enter Longpath Thinking, a way of both setting ambitious long-term goals but constantly adjusting our way forward – the way pioneers would pick a path across a wilderness to reach a distant mountain peak. Ari Wallach, a next-generation strategist, will anchor this roundtable that begins to think through how Longpath Thinking might really work. How would we begin to institutionalize this approach in government and business? 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Reinventors Network. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
