Change is always hard, but it doesn’t have to be. At New Hope's Esca Bona (un)Conference 2016, we worked with Future Partners to create an out-of-the-box day packed with exercises from embodying Beyonce to making movie stars of ourselves. 

We were faced with a difficult challenge: fix the broken food system to create a more sustainable and healthy model by 2025. 

It was inspiring. It was interactive. It gave us just the mindset we needed to get out there in our own companies and communities as change makers. 

Surrounded by roughly 120 thought leaders, there seemed to be no better group to tackle this steep challenge. Have roughly two minutes to spare? Check out some of the moonshot ideas born from the Blitz.
