In troubling times, it’s tempting to retreat to our comfort zones, to people just like us. But what if actively seeking the unfamiliar were proven to be the key to a brighter future – both personally and for society at large? June Sarpong puts the spotlight on groups who are often marginalised in our society and explains how a new approach to how we work, learn and live can help us reach our maximum potential, lessen the pressure on the state, and solve some of the most stubborn challenges we face.
