On Recruitment: Open Hearts IRL

by Katie Bethell, Leadership Team

In the week before the Web of Change 2015 application deadline, we held meet-up events in our four largest geographic hubs for alumni and applicants. The following is the story in pictures of our San Francisco meet-up, hosted by Leadership Team members Katie Bethell and Ben Simon.

Dumplings. Let’s be honest, they’re the perfect food. Dumplings remind us that simple ingredients can be transformed - elevated - with patience, craft, and a loving hand. We see a plate of dumplings and anticipate the fulfillment of our deepest, most primal desires: hunger, love, beauty. We say yes, and we nosh.  

In May, Bay Area Web of Changers and friends gathered at the Greenpeace warehouse to make, and eat, dumplings. 

 Makin' dumplins.

 Eugene says YES to dumplings.

At Web of Change, the simple ingredients of our community are elevated through our shared belief in the power of optimism and love to transform the world.  

It’s a craft of patience, and the result is a deeply fulfilling and sustained feast of inspiration. It’s delicious.
