John will briefly outline the upcoming Utah Citizen Summit on January 19, 2018 and why it's worth attending the event. He will also describe the patterns of societal flourishing and transformation which underlie The Summit as well as every endeavor which the Salt Lake Civil Network underwrites from TEDx Salt Lake City to Integral Polarity Practice (IPP), to wellness policy and homelessness. John will then lead us into a conversation of how we can apply these patterns of flourishing to improve any societal issue.
