French think tank Fondapol (The Political Innovation Foundation) are holding a fun event called Progress is Us on Saturday 16 November at la Mutualité in Paris. As they describe it:
“From midnight to midnight more than a hundred people will follow each other onto the stage to share their adventure with us. Men and women, young and not-so-young, entrepreneurs of all sizes, thinkers, artists, researchers, students, teachers, workers, bosses – all citizens, famous and unknown, who will demonstrate that we are the source and motor of progress.
“Business, cities, transport, medicine, work, youth, environment, Europe, science, technology, democracy – these are just some of the themes that we’ll be touching on during these 24 hours.”
Sounds like a great day.
