David Shaw attends inaugural Curiosity Retreat: May 2014
The inaugural Gateway Canyons curiosity retreat in May delivered an intimate opportunity to address some of the world’s most compelling issues, ranging from the mysteries of our vast universe to the future of nanotechnology and computing, the genetics revolution, the potential of the human brain, global food/water/energy sustainability, and geopolitical challenges.
The design of the retreat allowed participants to explore topics in detail and inspire each other with assistance from eminent scholars, thought leaders and content experts.
