"R/Evolution": Film Screening and Panel Discussion

April 18, 2012



“R/Evolution”, produced the World Servers Foundation in Geneva with its Executive Producer, Gillian Wright, was released in 2011 as a collage of creative, courageous, and inspiring initiatives by individuals, groups, communities, and movements around the world that exemplify a new way of thinking about leadership.
