Technology is amazing today. Compliments of Boeing Aircraft and Lufthansa Airlines, I am presently live on the Internet, and publishing this first ever post more than 30,000 feet over the Atlantic Ocean. You see, I am on my way to a board meeting for Global Dignity, a special initiative of HOPE Global Initiative, in Oslo, Norway.There I will meet up with three very special people in my life;fellow Global Dignity board members Martina Gmur of the Forum of Young Global Leaders and the World Economic Forum, Professor Pekka Himanen, one of the world's leading philosophers and an advisor to the President of Finland, and of course our host while in Norway, HRH Crown Prince Haakon.
In 2007, I am proud to report that HOPE's Banking on Our Future program will include a special segment teaching "dignity," as part of Global Dignity. HOPE Corps volunteers will have an opportunity both to teach financial literacy and/or simply dignity. Stay tuned...
Onward, with HOPE
