Watch above and see how Alexandra Bernadotte and Beyond 12 are addressing that question, as part of NationSwell's Big Bets series. The idea for the series and the footage came out of New Profit’s Gathering of Leaders, a platform for cross-sector dialogue among social-entrepreneurs and leaders in philanthropy, business, media, government, and academia. In February, Gathering participants took on this question and pointed the way towards exciting possibilities.

New Profit is proud to have partnered with NationSwell on “Big Bets.”
