New Story Summiteer and Coordinator of Generation Waking Up (GenUp), Joshua Gorman, is interviewed by our friends at Kosmos Journal. GenUp is a nonprofit organisation based in Oakland, California whose purpose is to ignite a generation of young people to bring forth a thriving, just, and sustainable world. Through their core programs – WakeUp, Thrive, and Synergize – they are helping the Millennial Generation realise its fullest potential and impact.
The interview was conducted by fellow Summiteer and film maker, Rhonda Fabian, at the Findhorn Foundation and Community in Scotland, during the New Story Summit in October 2014.

And we see the new story playing out in every sector of society with young people often leading the way.
