What a great, great day this was, with HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway and Professor Pekka Himanen of Finland, both of whom traveled from 16 hours from Europe to South Africa just to do Dignity Day at Zeekoevlei High School in the Cape flats area of the Western Cape (Cape Town).
It was a truly inspiring and empowering day, and the young people showed themselves worthy of the investment of time, energy and resources. The 300 young South Africans we taught "A Course in Dignity" to represent the first of thousands that will receive our dignity curriculum in schools throughout the Western Cape in the weeks, months and years to come, as we now have an agreement with MEC Cameron Dugmore, institutionalizing "dignity" for the first time ever in a school curriculum.
Global Dignity is an initiative of HOPE Global Initiatives and the Forum of Young Global Leaders, part of the World Economic Forum.
One person can change the world. Be that one person.
Onward with HOPE
