This is one of my all-time favorite experiences, in life. I was honored to be asked to speak at the closing session of the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Dignity for All (and a vision for for our collective future), and in the backdrop of the global economic crisis.
Honored as well to be with on this panel, World Economic Forum founder and chairman Professor Klaus Schwab, YGLs and fellow Global Dignity co-founders HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Professor Pekka Himanen of Finland, and South African Archbishop-Emeritus Desmond Tutu, who had joined the co-founders of Global Dignity along with Richard Branson and Peter Gabriel in a Dignity session at a local school.
Do me a favor and pass this on to children and young people who you hope to be leaders of and for our collective futures. Don't just forward it to them, along with the other pieces that feature Desmond Tutu and the other panelists (also on YouTube), but stop and watch it with them. Explain, what they are seeing and experiencing. Invest the time. Be…present in their lives.
Onward with HOPE
