In Conversation: A Journey to Make Change

In conversation - following up on comments from the course

In a change to our programme plan, we are excited to be able to share a conversation with Mary Robinson, Chair of The Elders, Former President of Ireland and Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, sharing her thoughts on the need to instil hope, and purpose around our passions, in order to rebuild after Covid and face the global challenges around us.

This video is part of The Elders ‘State of hope’ conversation, and also includes comments from Gordon Brown, Former Prime Minister of the UK, and Chris Hadfield, Astronaut and Science Communicator.

What strikes you in particular about what is said in this video? Is there one message that resonates strongly with you?
