XPLANE has been selected by the Fetzer Institute, a leading global organization supporting social transformation, to develop an inspiring video for its September Global Gathering in Assisi, Italy. Bringing together over 500 thought leaders, top scientists, and professionals from around the world, the gathering in Assisi will highlight—through discussion and debate, art and prose, film and performance—the transformative power of love and forgiveness at work in the world and chart a path for the Institute’s future work. Convening all of the Institute’s advisors and various international leaders for the very first time, the event will advance what we have collectively learned about the power of positivity from a diverse range of sectors.

“We’re very proud to be working with the Fetzer Institute on their Global Gathering,†says Drew Mattison, XPLANE Vice President of Business Development. “It’s not often that we get to be involved in an effort that focuses on making the world a better place through the power of human compassion so this is truly inspiring experience for all involved.â€
