The powerful images here speak for themselves, but it was so inspiring to see all of these young bright lights "transformed" right before us; unfolding and becoming their own true self. Honored to be here with my brothers, fellow YGL alumni and co-founders of Global Dignity, HRH Crown Prince Haakon Magnus of Norway and Professor Pekka Himanen of Finland. An incredible two days together.
A special thank you to each of our new Global Dignity Chairs, which we will announce each in turn in weeks to come, and thank you to David Aikman, Head of the Forum of Young Global Leaders in Geneva, Switzerland, for attending the Oslo Meeting, and for his support.
