Homegrown: Strengthening Georgia from Within|
From people to products, music to services, what can Georgia grow well "at home"?
While Georgia is integrated into and dependent upon the national and global economy, in a competitive environment in which quality of life, human capital and local production are the distinguishing markers of successful countries and states, being strong and vibrant at home can be the edge that provides economic and cultural resiliency and sustainability.
The 2013 Forum will focus on how Georgia can remain a great place to live, learn, work and play through "homegrown" strategies. The Forum will feature thought-provoking keynote speakers and dedicated sessions on our entrepreneurial ecosystem, the intersection of healthcare and education, what the local food movement can teach other industries in Georgia, why we are a music hotbed, and the future of energy in Georgia, among others.
The Forum will also feature full discussions on (1) the future of rural Georgia through the work our 2013 Young Gamechangers and (2) the soon-to-be released Georgia Civic Health Index, a measure of how civically engaged we are in Georgia.
There is no other gathering like the Forum in Georgia. Decision-makers and idea-generators from business, government and civil society gather to explore emerging trends and form new partnerships to forge a stronger state. At the Forum, businesses have found new clients, elected officials have made new partnerships, and non-profits and foundations have found new direction. Don't miss it!
