How do we all thrive in a Region of Boom?

Oct 14, 2016

Based on KUOW's series on growth in our region, Region of Boom Live brought together a wide array of speakers to answer the question: how can we create a community where all can thrive?

Speakers were asked to present in the PechaKucha format, where each presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds each, with images advancing automatically as they speak. 

Featured were leaders, artists and visionaries who are defining the future of our region as they explore the complexity and opportunities brought about by Puget Sound’s unprecedented growth. 

Below are select presentations from the evening. To see the full event, visit Seattle Channel.
