World Tapestry is a new name for an old Greenwood concept that doesn't fall under any specific topic other than...“interesting.” It’s the formal umbrella under which we expose Greenwood students to a tapestry of innovative products, people, culture, and ideas. We curate and invite divergent thinkers, entrepreneurs, and caring individuals to share their thoughts, anyway they can: a live conference, a video, or best of all, in person.
 
We also find and vet topics, presenting them to students with or without the author, in school-wide Community Meetings. Inspiring ideas ranging from luggage you can ride to the new 3D printed sports car prototype, beg to be shared with and investigated by our curious young men.
