In the spring of 2014, we visited 25 countries over 42 days in order to find the real-life changemakers who are transforming our world for the better. The project serves as both a study and a celebration: a study on how technology is reshaping the way in which we communicate, collaborate, and innovate, as well as a celebration of the pioneers who have used the new and existing tools available to them to show us just how much is possible in the Networked Society.
Inspired by these creative individuals and by the revolutionary innovations they have brought to our global society, we want to help people and businesses everywhere to see the opportunities that are available right now within the Networked Society and to become part of this global transformation.
