SEF 2020

In 2020, the world witnessed the unpredictability of life itself. Now, more than ever, there is a need for a community of engaged and inspired changemakers to bring forth the dawn of a new age. We asked the community to open their minds to possibilities greater than themselves, to think of the human collective, and of our impact on the greater good.
