Speaker: Sean Geobey

You are somewhere. As much as a university can feel like a bubble – your corner of it even more so – you are part of a bigger world. You are also in a place where the most cutting edge ideas in that world are being developed, though it often feels like those ideas rarely move outside Ring Road. However, that bigger world is a place that needs your ideas and needs different perspectives to help solve its most intractable problems.
