Science Fiction & Social Fiction
“We have science fiction, and science follows it. We imagine it, and it comes true. Yet we don’t have social fiction, so nothing changes.”
-Muhammad Yunus, Skoll Forum 2013
Our Founder & CEO recently had the privilege of attending the 2013 Skoll Forum in Oxford England (thanks to a very generous donor). Mark spent the week soaking in the wisdom of humanitarians such as Muhammad Yunus and Dr. Paul Farmer. Their words left Mark with the conclusion that the tough social ills and problems of our time require thoughtful people asking both how and why and then giving their lives not only to causes and solutions but to suffering people.
