MasterPeace Great Minds Meeting 2018

Join the dialogue about diversity and inclusivity
Together we can create a sustainable future with less conflict

MasterPeace is proud to organize the 5th edition of the Great Minds Meeting. World population has reached 7.5 billion. We believe that they are 7.5 billion potential talents, not 7.5 billion issues. Our mission is to unleash the potential of everyone, and create a sustainable future together.

This years theme is: . This is the guiding principle to discuss diversity and inclusivity from various perspectives.

We will use Storytelling and Storylistening as a way to share ideas. For this, we have created the concept of ‘squares’ (‘dorpspleinen’), just like in the old days. Inspiring storytellers will share their insights how to contribute to a more diverse and inclusive society. You are invited to join them on a square, listen to their stories and share what triggers you to act.

Who can you meet?
We expect around 300 participants from various backgrounds – it will be a diverse and colourful mix of the public sector, businesses and civil society. The result is an impactful networking event to inspire and be inspired, while exploring the possibilities for personal growth and as well as contributing to a sustainable society.

See below for a selection of the storytellers who will share their personal perspectives and experiences on diversity and inclusivity…
