In July 2021, The Elders embarked on a series of State of Hope Gatherings exploring some of the biggest challenges facing the world today, from injustice and inequality, to peace-building and the climate crisis. Bringing different perspectives together on these issues, and reaching out to a range of different audiences has been a key part of The Elders’ State of Hope. We have had contributions for former heads of state and future world leaders, astronauts and grassroots activists.
The State of Hope Gatherings allow us to continue these conversations. To ensure a diverse range of people have the opportunity to share their views on how to approach these global challenges, we are working with a variety of partners, including the British Council, Project Syndicate and the Templeton World Charity Foundation to deliver a range of unique events.
