Our capacity to thrive is due to our ability to adapt, and our ability to adapt is merely a reflection of our ability to come together and share ideas. And yet, as James we are often “half awake. Our fires are damped, our rafts are checked… the human individual lives usually far within his limits”. Project Petrichor is the institute's manifesto for why, and how, like petrichor, we can rise again after the rain.
