Under normal circumstances, Felix and Heather may never have met. Our forums bring together people from different worlds with their personal stories, experiences, and their very own views on society.
Our forums take place in inspiring cities and challenging places. For one day, the Young Leaders immerse themselves in the lives of (social) entrepreneurs, chief administrators or activists who want to change things in their cities: be it at a cooperative in Buenos Aires, a migrant society in Beijing or the water management board in Windhoek. The goal of the conversations and workshops is to take a closer look, investigate how problems develop, and search for new ideas and solutions.
A good Young Leaders Forum does not end with the participants’ departure. It fosters new relationships, strengthens people’s engagement, and harnesses the Responsible Leaders’ know-how and networks for a good cause.
This is exactly what happened when Heather and Felix met.
