‘‘In a world where it seems no-one agrees on anything, a world where politics divides, religion divides, and race and even cultural borders seem to divide, dignity is something that everyone can agree on.” Global Dignity Day founders HRH Crown Prince Haakon, John Hope Bryant and Prof. Pekka Himanen


On the first day of his visit to South Africa, President Barack Obama participated in a Town Hall meeting with Young African Leaders Initiative at the University of Johannesburg in Soweto.

One message from Obama came across very clear. He told us “If the dignity of the individual is upheld across Africa, I believe Americans will be more free as well.”
