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 a prototype 3D printed car, beg to be shared and investigated by our curious young men.
