The Spirit of Enterprise Summit

The Spirit of Enterprise: Business Approaches to Regenerating the Commons


Can the impact of business shift from exploiting to serving and regenerating the commons?

How can we best learn the skills and capacities to actualize these aspirations? Come explore these and related questions during Meridian's online conversation series with organizational leaders and social innovators.

Each occasion will feature live conversations or panel discussions, including live Q&A. You can listen to the conversation live by webcast, or you can listen to the recordings at a later date. Registrants will also have access to recordings from the 2013 Spirit of Enterprise series.
