Our Vision
COMMON GROUND AND GREATER GOOD
Common ground blooms greater good. When we focus on what we share—and build from there—we are lifted. Ken Streater has witnessed this in threadbare and thriving places around the world. His belief in our ability to fix what ails us comes from eye-opening experiences and deep interactions with everyday heroes across the globe. Be it showdowns with angry hippos, tropical nuclear attacks, billionaire shenanigans, Siberian soccer wars or quiet conversations, these events and others motivate Ken to foster positive change. He hopes to talk with you soon about building better communities.
