Imagining Ourselves
Albert Einstein has is often been quoted as saying, “You can never solve a problem on the level on which it was created.”

To create positive change in the world, it would be shortsighted to only focus on solving existing problems. Yes, we can (and must) mobilize around tough issues, such as ending poverty or stopping environment degradation. But there is a bigger conversation to be had—a bigger collective vision to form. A set of values from which the problem-solving techniques will necessarily follow.

Who do we want to be in the world? Given the opportunities we’ve been granted, given our unique moment in history where technology allows to connect across borders, where do we go from here? How do we IMAGINE the world we want to live in?

Spoken word artist Aya deLeon dreams humorously of a world in which women equally participate in the hip-hop industry. Mexican photographer Itzel Martinez photographs a world in which young women are free to be themselves, without commercial or social stereotypes.

What is your vision for our shared future? Join the conversation.
