Public Symposia

Last year’s Public Symposia began July 16 2013, with leaders in business, government, nongovernmental organizations, philanthropy, and the arts convening for four nights of a dynamic, cross-cultural experience as they explored the theme – Unleashing Human Potential: Reinventing Communities, Business and Education.

In July 2014, Colorado delegates traveled to Mexico City to deliberate topics, such as energy and education, forming insights and action items to bring back home for the upcoming Biennial festival in 2015.
