No one social, political, public or economic figure can implement change without the community’s participation. The movement spawned by Tijuana Innovadora is an example of this. First, residents gathered to organize the great conference, then they agreed to continue to work together to advance the ideals of that event.
This model is not unique to this region. In recent history, we have seen that profound changes can happen, sometimes virtually overnight, when citizens unite on a grand scale and act as one. The speakers on this day will reflect on recent examples, and share the lessons we can draw from them.
