    I'm afraid I couldn't read the green sticky notes under "What problems will be solved with this prize?" @fionahg, I think you worked on this? Do you remember - roughly - what they said?

    2. Culture and activism
    3. Community builders and connectors
    4. Multinational corporations
    5. Policymakers and regulators
