Field Notes: The Untapped Power of Diversity in a Fractured World

In October 2016 Louisvillian and occasional worker Joe Geoghegan and his high-school friend Noah quit their jobs and began an incredible adventure from Louisville to Antarctica...all by land and sea. Traveling by his wits Geoghegan has explored more than a dozen countries and met with scores of people. This experience has left a variety of intense impressions on him, including how such traveling can help facilitate a better understanding among diverse people in an increasingly fractured world. Geoghegan is interrupting his adventure to return to IdeaFestival from Australia to share his notes, experiences and deep impressions of his travels.
