This past fall, The 431 Project hosted its Inaugural Summit at the beautiful Riverside Farm in Vermont. During the three day event, several exciting speakers presented cutting edge ideas on their work to tackle ideas on global health issues, and City Fresh was fortunate enough to have its founder and CEO as one of its presenters.
The objective for the summit was to establish a dynamic think-tank to network, discuss, debate and put into action solutions for health, fitness and nutrition issues facing the next generation.
Watch the presentation here:
At the first annual 431 Project Summit, passionate athletes, nutritionists, fitness experts, technology gurus, and educators all gathered to develop a vision for how we might re-imagine the future for our young people and set the wheels in motion to create a seismic shift in supporting them to lead healthier, more active lives. Hear some of these transformative ideas below and think about how we might set these ideas into action in our own lives.
We challenge you to spread the ideas that inspire you with your friends, social networks, and other like-minded visionaries by using the #431Action hashtag. What ideas have you already set into action in your own community? Let us know so we can help spread the word and apply now to attend the 2nd annual summit to be held at Riverside Farm in Pittsfield, VT October 16-18, 2015.
