TOPIC & SPEAKER
How can we use science and imagination to create a new global economy? At our March #Rethink event, Joshua Fouts will be discussing how empowering young minds with big ideas can transform the future.
Joshua is Executive Director of Science House Foundation, a New York City based international non-profit that works to spark the imaginations of students worldwide about the excitement of science and mathematics. Joshua is a digital business anthropologist, technologist, futurist, and entrepreneur who has worked at the forefront of cultural collaboration, science and technology innovation. In the 1990s Joshua worked as a diplomat for the United States focused on cultural relations. He went on to launch and direct, at the University of Southern California Annenberg School, two think tanks -- in 1998 the first ever think tank dedicated online journalism and in 2003 the first-ever think-tank dedicated to the applied study of cultural relations. Joshua has a lifelong passion for anthropology and the science of culture. He is a senior fellow for Science Diplomacy, Culture and Education at the Center for the Study of the Presidency & Congress and a Next Generation Fellow at The American Assembly. He speaks Brazilian Portuguese.
