In The Arena

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."- Theodore Roosevelt "Man in the Arena"

 

On Saturday 15th January a small group of people met up at The Royal Festival Hall London for a Creative Futures Jam hosted by ThinkActVote.  A great day spent with professionals across different areas, engaged in sustainability, social entrepreneurship and creativity.  You can see a presentation on our collective effort to problem solve some of today's challenges here. If you want to be in "The Arena" you must surround yourself with inspiring people.
