In a nutshell Year of the X is a blend between Websummit and Burning Man. Every year we bring together changemakers from all over the world. We host tech entrepreneurs, business leaders, Buddhist monks and Mayan princes, who really understand new technology trends and more importantly impact on the future of work, media and a society as a whole.
Everything is changing: our companies are becoming more agile and responsive. Our education system needs to foster emotional intelligence, digital competency and project-based learning. And our society requires us to accept diversity and intimacy and become more community-focussed. Our aim is to help move our society to the next level with more integrated mindsets and stronger ties to the community.
