Global Dignity Day Forum Set for October 19 2011
The Global Dignity Day Forum will take place for the first time in Finland on October 19, 2011, from 6:00-8:15 pm in Espoo Barona Arena. The Global Dignity Day Forum 2011 event will include speeches from several well-known international leaders, including: HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Archbishop Emeritus and Nobel Laureate Desmond Tutu, John Hope Bryant, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Operation HOPE, and President and Nobel Laureate Martti Ahtisaari. The event will be hosted by Global Dignity Co-Founder, philosopher Pekka Himanen. The speakers will share their personal views and experiences on dignity.
Global Dignity was founded by three Young Global Leaders in 2006: HRH Crown Prince Haakon, John Hope Bryant, and Pekka Himanen. They came the the conclusion that in this world, which is divided by religion, race, and cultural boundaries, dignity is something everyone can agree on. Global Dignity has organized events with world leaders and opinion leaders in over 40 countries, and in 2011, Global Dignity Day events will take place in over 50 countries.
The Global Dignity Day Forum event will provide an opportunity for participants to exchange ideas and thoughts about dignity and tolerance. The organizers have invited hundreds of students to participate and hear each others' thoughts on dignity and leadership. As such, the Forum will also be a perfect place for participants to meet like-minded youth.
