In her own words...

Transformation is a process of thinking differently about how we address the scale of change that is needed to achieve a better, more sustainable planet. It is about moving beyond the advances that science and technology alone can offers us and finding courageous ways of using the power of imagination to harness creative forces. Transformation is about finding new ways of including society in this journey of imagining, taking risks and innovating, using our hearts as well as our heads to bring about changes in our values and lifestyles.
