“Capitalism is often driven by greed and self-interest at the expense of the common good. Humanity is in need of a new framework, a new set of values to guide how we build, distribute, and share wealth and resources. The One Planet Summit strives to start these conversations with the exact people who are in positions to take meaningful action.” - Payam Zamani, founder of One Planet Group
