The three-day gathering brings leaders together to confront the most pressing social and environmental issues in the Americas. It’s becoming one of the important convenings of thought leaders in Miami – and another sign that Miami is increasingly a place where important conversations are taking place.
This year’s conference lineup includes Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes (who is also a Knight Foundation trustee), KIVA co-founder Jessica Jackley, The Humane Society’s, CEO and President Wayne Pacelle, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
Knight Foundation, which is focused on building more informed and engaged communities, is a sponsor of the conference. For several years, Knight has worked to build Miami’s art and cultural life and, as it continues that work, is now also focused on making Miami more of a place where ideas are built. To do that, Knight funds important gatherings that connect and inspire, and invests in the tools that allow people to better take action.
