Welcome from SN/IEN, orientation to the program and an engaging Keynote conversation with Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, Founder, Urban Ocean Lab & Co-Founder, The All We Can Save Project, on "All we can save - rooting our work in compassion, connection, creativity, and collaboration."

Some key takeaways from this session:
  • It’s important to create community, even in a virtual space. Some of the tools we’re using for that include: meaningful introductions including land acknowledgements; Slido polls/interactive questions; peer to peer conversations
  • The Pursuit will be a 4-milestone journey driven by what participants are looking for
  • Participants in the Pursuit are setting ambitious goals
